As part of the Structural Repair works we carried out a Structural repair Survey in order to diagnose the causes of cracking and movement and to design a suitable repair scheme that would restraint all Structural Movement.

The first phase of works are to 5 No 1940’s built properties built using cavity wall construction which were suffering from cracks at the junctions of the outside walls and the internal masonry partition walls.

In order to prevent any further movement we specified Twistfix Helical rods to be installed into the external bed joints, drilled into the internal masonry partition walls and then grouted into the masonry creating an L shaped tie resisting any further outward movement.
