Our remedial wall ties keep your walls standing strong and secure.

We never tear down, buttress or reconstruct anything when it comes to fixing leaning and bulging walls. These obsolete techniques break the bank and can even evict you from your home for months!

Instead, we use our very own remedial wall ties formed using the latest technology around. Implemented with progressive techniques by our team of technicians and engineers, our ties stabilise walls that bow, lean or bulge over a day or two, at an affordable price.

More importantly, you can stay at home while we do all the work.

Signs you might need remedial wall ties

Gaps Between Your Walls and Door Frames

Gaps between walls

When your walls begin shifting, it can cause internal and external walls to detach. This detachment, compounded by lateral forces, makes these walls susceptible to movement, threatening the building’s stability.

Horizontal cracks and bowed walls

crack-and-bowed-walls

Horizontal cracks and bulging walls serve as warning signs from either an underlying foundational failure or a wall tie failure. Therefore, if you observe such horizontal cracks or notice your walls bowed it’s critical to take immediate action.

Ceiling and Cornice Cracks

Ceiling Cracks

Ceiling cracks can indicate your home is sinking into the ground due to unstable soil or poor foundations. Pressure from sinking rises upwards and can force walls to lean, eventually creating cracks in the ceiling or cornices.

Corner cracks

Corner-crack-icon

Clay bricks can expand as buildings age. This expansion creates lateral force and cracks to appear in the corners of your home. This lateral force can be so severe that it results in wall ties breaking within cavities, compromising the structural integrity.

Why are remedial wall ties essential for my home and what causes them to fail?

If your home’s walls are made of two separate layers of brick with a gap in the middle, you have cavity walls.

To ensure these walls stay connected to the overall structure, wall ties are built into brickwork during construction. Over time, these wall ties can fail, causing them to become unstable and eventually lean.

The leading causes of wall tie failure include corrosion from exposure to moisture and water, disconnection caused by subsidence and breakage from expanding brickwork.

Remedial wall ties act as a replacement cavity wall tie to ensure the permanent stability of your walls and more importantly, your home’s structure.
