Cavity Wall Ties
According to government statistics, nearly two million homes in the UK will suffer cavity wall tie corrosion or failure this year, with each property needing specialist remedial work to restore its safety.
Prior to the mid 1930s, many cavity wall ties were installed without a galvanised layer of protection, making them vulnerable to corrosion over time and leaving older properties with potential structural issues in the future. In most cases, these ties are built into the cement joints between the bricks during its original construction and replacing them is now a necessity – leaving them untreated risks your safety as there could ultimately be a total structural failure.
Since 1990, cavity walls and galvanised ties were made mandatory as part of industry building regulations. The experts at Croft Preservation can assess the condition of your existing cavity wall ties using the latest diagnostics technology and create a detailed report outlining our proposed treatment. In most cases, individual ties will need replacing or new ties will have to be installed to support the interior and exterior walls.
