Structural Wall Repair

There a number of reasons that your home will require structural repair. Environmental changes such as subsidence or flooding can cause extreme damage to the surface and structure of your property. 

These problems should not be ignored as they can lead to the appearance of cracked masonary and the failure of structural damp proofing. The usual factors which lead to the structural defects are ground or wall movement, weathering, increased structural pressure or rusting of wall ties in masonry may leave your property with foundation problems and structural instability. 

Why Is It Important to Carry Out Structural Repairs?

Depending on the treatment which your home requires, the expense may be much less than you expect, thanks to the techniques which are used by our Richardson & Starling teams.

When to Use Crack Stitching Bars

Are you wondering if crack stitching is the best option for your property? First of all, crack stitching is used when a building starts to get vertical cracking – a problem which should be treated as soon as possible. 

In most cases crack stitching is the perfect solution for cracked masonry, however, it should only be applied once our surveyors have determined the reasons behind the cracking. By investing in crack stitching you will see the long term and short term benefits of doing this.
