Cavity Wall Ties in Waterloo

Cavity Wall Ties in WaterlooOne of the important parts of any building is the walls and many walls are built using cavity wall ties in Waterloo. The cavity walls often have insulation in the cavity either partially or completely filling the space. The cavity wall is a form of insulation against cold or heat from penetrating the building. The wall ties were most often made of galvanized steel and they are exposed to water from condensation and chemicals from the cement. In some cases they will deteriorate mainly due to moisture in the outer brickwork. This can be a huge problem as it can cause the collapse of the walls if left unchecked. Any cracks in the outer walls of a building need to be assessed and measures need to be taken as soon as possible to stop the deterioration.

Living in a moist climate can have some draw backs. In Waterloo, cavity wall ties deteriorate and fail to do the job they were intended for. If you notice any cracks in your walls then call us immediately. Failed cavity wall ties can be replaced with substitute ties that are installed by drilling through the walls and being fixed in place. Galvanises steel is no longer used in wall ties as it will eventually break down. Stainless steel is now the material of choice as it is not susceptible to either water corrosion or chemical attack by the concrete. The sooner you notify us of the suspected problem with the cavity wall ties the easier it is for us to make your home safe again.
