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.
