Failing Brickwork Repairs
Action Wall Ties have been helping homeowners and commercial and public sector landlords with failing brickwork issues on their properties for over 20 years.
Our reputation in masonry repair and reinforcement has been built on the ability of our surveyors to promptly identify such issues and recommend the ideal remedial solutions, as well as our team’s ability to swiftly and cost-effectively resolve any brickwork remediation.
Why is your brickwork failing?
Brickwork can fail in two primary ways:
Lintels and brick arches can start to distort or drop
Often caused, or made worse, by movement, window replacement work, the passage of time, hygrothermal activity – i.e. the expansion and contraction of materials due to temperature changes over time – and/or moisture ingress. Poor workmanship cannot be ruled out as another cause and inadequate support over windows can allow brickwork to start to sag.Solutions often include bed joint reinforcement and fenestration lintel repair to add more support and stability, followed by repointing to renew the aesthetic integrity of your walls.
Brickwork can start to spall or break up
Frost action, erosion and poor pointing can aid in the crumbling of your brickwork. Another progressive issue is crypto-efflorescence, which can start as unsightly white patches but if left untreated can also lead to spalling.
The important thing to know is that all of the above issues are resolvable – all have been seen before and repaired before for hundreds of clients.
