What does Structural Damage do and why does it require structural repairs?

There are a multitude of reasons as to why structural damage may affect a building be it poor initial build quality, sub-standard building materials or even degradation due to weather. If your building has visible cracks in the masonry or render or if a wall appears bowed then it may need structural repairs.

Cracks in a mortar line can indicate that wall ties have failed or that the original mortar mix was incorrect we can provide you with a detailed report and specification for repairs which may include re pointing or replacement wall ties. Left unchecked these issues can promote penetrating damp or even a weakening of the buildings fabric, which may require more thorough structural repairs.

Professional Structural Repairs

Original or even replacement render can lose adhesion or crack due to movement or thermal expansion and contraction and this can offer an entry point for rain. Penetrating damp, frost damage and algae/moss growth can follow, unsightly at best, structurally damaging at worst, requiring a more significant set of structural repairs. Experienced in all aspects of external rendering using sand/cement, lime or modern coatings such as K rend we can provide a fixed quotation including scaffolding, to carry out your structural repairs, if necessary.

Cracks in masonry will often require stabilising and we have access to the latest equipment and techniques using grouts, rods and resins to ensure a permanent and simple fix and quality structural repairs. Aged properties may have timber in the walls to level courses or as lintels above windows and doors and damp ingress can cause the timbers to rot, this can require structural repairs.

Whatever the defect we can provide advice, information and when needed a specification to repair and rectify. If you require structural repairs call us today on 0800 161 3078 or complete the Survey request form.
