Bulging or cracking walls fixed by Helifix and Cintec approved specialist contractor
When Yorkshire's buildings crack and move repair is not always straightforward.
We have 27 years in the business of making things right when walls crack or bulge. We are approved by the two leading manufacturers of specialist masonry repair systems:
- Cintec International (bespoke grouted anchor system and wall ties)
- Helifix (Wide ranging structural stabilisation methods and wall ties)
We also specialise in traditional repairs and often the listed buildings we work on need particular care and a range of methods – there is no magic bullet and every building is different.
This is where our experience and independence is vital. A range of masonry repair options, tailored to meet the needs of our clients and that of the building are considered. Often a hybrid mixed approach works best, using the Cintec Anchor System with other tie methods too. On others, installation of a Helifix masonry beaming, remedial wall ties or lateral restraint systems may suit.
In rubble filled and high performance situations the Cintec grouted anchor range offers unrivalled flexibility and proven success on thousands of projects - see how the patented anchor works on this video from a masonry repair project we completed in Leeds
No system of structural repair can work without diligent installation and this is where we excel. Qualified wall tie technicians and a detailed and robust quality control procedure ensure that the work, which is often hidden from view, meets the specification or exceeds it.
We own no less than three independently calibrated tension testing rigs spanning from 5 to 25Kn ranges (higher values available by request). Our Helifix and Cintec trained technicians’ test and test again, to make sure that the systems we’ve installed offer complete confidence. Digital images of the test gauge readings and copies of test sheets and calibration certificates are always available so clients know that wall tie, stitching ties or lateral restraints we install really will do the job.
