Our experienced and qualified surveyor will carryout an electrical sweep to the external surfaces of the building to locate a number of existing ties. They will drill small access holes and use an endoscopic camera to examine the condition and type of ties used in the construction. If these ties are found to be in a corroded state and affecting the stability of the walls, we would then provide a replacement specification using stainless steel ties which will be installed externally through the brick or stone rather than the mortar bed joints.
It is often possible to isolate the existing ties to prevent further disruption to the masonry without the need of removing the ties. The surveyor will provide the best solution for each properties needs
