Brick slips may be simply the aesthetic layer to your building’s façade – generally found bedded onto concrete floor beams to create the appearance of continuous brickwork – but when they fail, it is important to investigate why?
Brick slips can fail for innocuous reasons such as poor bonding, but their detachment or bulging could also be a sign of a more worrisome issue such as movement, concrete frame shortening, and transfer of loading due to lack of horizontal soft joints and infill wall head restraints. These will require the expertise of a masonry repair and reinforcement specialist for the correct professional remedial work, providing peace of mind.
Over the last 20 years, as leaders in our field, we have assisted many property owners and structural engineers to identify the causation of their masonry related issues and consistently determined the most cost-effective and sympathetic solutions for them – even developing a few ourselves, when standard remedies did not exist, that have been adopted by others in the industry.
Your property will be in good hands because not only are we dedicated to offering you, the client, a swift and affordable quality service, but our team always take the greatest care to minimise any disruption experienced by those who live in and around your property.
We are the specialists for the repair of brick slip problems, and we cover London, Kent, Surrey and Sussex with our specialist surveyors and contractors.
