As we head toward the middle of September, now is a very good time to take care of any structural repair issues that you have with your property before the winter weather arrives and your minor problem becomes something major.
Repair of failed lintel using Twistfix Helifix, stainless steel bed joint reinforcement, to create a deep masonry beam to distribute the structural loads , in combination with two 12mm groutless ties to reconnect the brick arch lintel with the masonry above.
Newman’s have begun a lintel reinforcement scheme for a social housing client in south London to a low level block of flats.
The original timber windows were removed by a glazing contractor who discovered that the brickwork was built without any Intel’s present so upon removal of the frame the masonry above failed causing cracking and sagging.
Twistfix helical rods will be installed between the window openings to repair the masonry and create lintels within the brickwork and pinning ties installed vertically through the last course of bricks pinning it into sound masonry.
Our technicians will be onsite for only one week to allow the glazing contractor to ccarry out their works safely.
