The process of cavity wall tie replacement in Dovecote homes, involves a number of steps that need to be carried out with extreme precision and down to the last detail. If you are wondering why the outer masonry of your home is falling off or ominous cracks are appearing all over the masonry then you probably need to get the ties replaced. The purpose of these ties is to create a connection between the inner and outer wall of your home. Normally, they are placed during the construction of your home but at times, due to the use of improper or poor quality ties, corrosion can cause them to break, which in turn leads to forcing the masonry apart. That’s when the cracks start to appear and also when the roof edges start lifting or the walls start bulging.
In Dovecote, cavity wall tie replacement is all about knowing exactly where the problem is and taking appropriate action. The first step is to identify the source of the problem, or the weak/broken tie. The initial part of the process is about understanding the magnitude of the situation and keeping an eye on the width of the cavity, the condition of the masonry as well as the condition of the ties. Once you have all the information, you can begin the process of replacing the wall ties but this is where you need a different set of ties because you already have an existing wall now and the only way to install these ties is by drilling in from one side, which isn’t how new ties are laid down. The ties used during the construction of a new wall are not the same as the ones used when ties are being replaced.
