Bay windows have been a feature of domestic street housing since the Victorian era, providing a window space projecting outward from the main elevational wall. It is not uncommon for these bays to develop defects requiring repair.
Common issues encountered include cracking, leaning, dropping of lintels and arches and masonry pulling away from the building – the causation for which can often be attributed, at least in part, to shallower foundations when compared with those of the main building (thus allowing the possibility of differential settlement), a lack of effective lateral restraining, or movement within the masonry elements.
Action Wall Ties have, over many years, developed a suite of unique innovative working methods and specialised equipment that enable precise manipulation and realignment of the existing masonry and unique cutting and drilling techniques to accommodate reinforcing, restraining and metal works.
We also design and fabricate bespoke remedial metal works to reinforce and restrain. All of which empowers AWT to permanently stabilise the structure sympathetically, preserving the original masonry and character of a property.
Action Wall Ties are experts in masonry repair and reinforcement, and over the last 20 years we have helped hundreds, if not thousands, of customers to resolve their bay window movement related issues.
Cracks and movement in bay windows are easily repaired and we cover London, Kent, Surrey and Sussex with our specialist contractors and surveyors.
We know what works, we have the skilled team in place to quickly assess the full extent of the problem at hand, and we take pride in the care with which we always conduct ourselves on site, mindful of those that live in and around the property we are working on.
