Signs of building needing structural repair

Signs That Your Property Needs Structural Repairs Carried Out

Having structural problems within your building can be serious if the signs of structural damage are not identified immediately. If you can not see a clear cause for the problem, then we would advise consultation from a structural repair contractor.

The specialist will be able to determine the extent of the issue and the cause of the structural damage. We have compiled a shortlist of telltale signs that your building will need structural repairs carried out, these are the following:

  • Ground or wall movement
  • Cracked masonry
  • Damp penetration

Structural Repair Solutions We Provide

At Timberwise we have been providing structural repair solutions for over 50 years and we have been helping customers across the UK to solve all properties that are suffering from structural damage.

The list below detail the structural repair services that we offer:

Cavity Wall Ties

Cavity wall ties are metal strips that are used to hold two walls together which are used to provide resistance from penetrating damp and help improve the thermal performance of the wall. Issues start to occur when these start to deteriorate over time which can lead to cracks in the brickwork and therefore reduce the structural integrity of the building.

The installing and repairing of cavity wall ties should be carried out by specialists. If your walls are showing signs of cracking or building then get in touch with our experienced team for free expert advice. You can alternatively find out information about cavity wall tie replacement.

Crack stitching

Crack Stitching

Crack stitching is one of the most popular types for using structural repairs to fixing cracks in brick walls and for properties that have cracks in the masonry. It is one of the most popular solutions as it provides an effective and guaranteed solution rather than rebuilding the section of the wall that has been damaged.

A technician will use specialised bars, that have been grouted, which will be applied over the walls to reconnect the wall together. Not only will this strengthen the wall structure but this will provide extra protection from further cracking.

Concrete Repair

Although you may not realise it, there are many forces at play which can cause damage to your concrete, and if this is left to go untreated it could be very costly to repair. Timberwise can help provide concrete repair solutions that are durable and effective to fix your structural problem.

Wall Stabilisation

Over time, buildings are inevitably subject to being affected caused by natural or physical events. When this occurs this causes cracks in the walls of the building which need urgent attention as soon as possible. At Timberwise we install products designed by Thor Helical to fix the cracks in the walls through cost effective and efficient methods.

Timber Repairs

Properties across the country are vulnerable to being affected by woodworm or dry rot issues. When this occurs timber repairs will need to be carried out to treat the problem. The most used solution to repairing the damaged timber from dry rot or wet rot is through tracing the affected timber and cutting this back.

The sections of timber could be potentially affected by fungal decay will be treated with fungicide and new timbers will be added to replace the rotten timber.
