This block of four garages is suffering from a large number of substantial cracks within the masonry due to movement of the concrete floor slab, the garages have been monitored for a period of 18 months and there has been no further on-going movement.

Newman’s have been asked to put together a structural repair scheme using the Twistfix Helical System, our design will include Twistfix  masonry beams and crack stitches as well as repairs to the concrete floor slab.

This large block of garages is also suffering from cracked brickwork and has also slipped off its DPC (damp proof course) due to no movement joints being present, Newman’s will again design a scheme to include Twistfix crack stitches and Twistfix retro fit movement joints, where the brickwork has slipped of the DPC localised areas will be rebuilt.
