When a homeowner notices bulging brickwork or horizontal cracks in the house’s foundations, they realize it is time for a cavity wall tie replacement in Waterloo. Cavity wall ties are bars or metal strips which are built-in as part of a building’s construction. Wall ties are supposed to hold the house’s masonry together, therefore they are vital to the stability and safety of wall. Wall ties are galvanized because they are usually made from steel and or iron, which can be affected by corrosion. With the passage of time however, the galvanization can break down, leading to corrosion of these wall ties. So what is a home owner supposed to do if they notice cracks or bulging brickwork?
