Once our surveyor had carried out a Structural Survey it was discovered that there was numerous causes of concern which were highlighted by some major cracking and bowing to the masonry. A Structural Repair program was designed introducing Twistfix Lateral Restraint Ties, Bed Joint Reinforcement and water repellent masonry facade protection.

Lateral Restraint Ties were installed to the gable elevation were Bowing Masonry at floor joist level was apparent, Lintel Failure had also occurred and Bed Joint Reinforcement was used to create masonry beams without the need for costly rebuilds.

Water penetration to the front elevation had caused a failure to the pointing and spalling of the brick faces. Newman’s carry out deep bed re pointing and inject the masonry with Twistfix WHO-60 grout prior to re-pointing. The spalled bricks were repaired and tinted combined with Water Repellent facade cream which provides a breathable water resistant barrier the facade was saved.
