Your house may need cavity wall tie replacement in Litherland if you have noticed horizontal cracks along the brickwork. This could be a result of the expansion of a rusting cavity wall tie. This would force the bricks to dislodge at the mortar joint. Wall ties, particularly in older buildings, will begin to corrode over time. Cavity wall ties are an essential part of any building. Their job is to tie together the outer cavity of brickwork to its inner masonry skin. Wall ties were used in the construction of houses since the early 19th century and became popular in building works during the 1930’s.
In Litherland, cavity wall tie replacement is essential to maintain the structural integrity of the building. Without wall ties, the both of the building’s ‘skins’ become independent of each other. This means that the building has become structurally unsafe and is a danger to those that may be in it or around it. It is imperative that a specialist be consulted to determine the extent of the damage and the best possible solution.
