Wall Tie Surveys

Professional wall tie surveys from the Yorkshire specialists

Brick-Tie Preservation is a trading name of Brick-Tie Limited, and we’re proud to be the best known and longest established wall tie survey specialist in Yorkshire – we have all the answers to wall tie corrosion problems, and have been serving domestic and commercial clients for 3 decades!

We’ve installed hundreds of thousands of wall ties over the past thirty years; from Leeds to Sheffield, Harrogate to York and Halifax to Scarborough – nobody has more experience than our wall tie surveyors and technicians.

Despite popular belief, not all cavity wall ties rust, and surprisingly, two houses which look identical from the outside and are the same age, may have completely different standards of wall ties in them. A proper detailed wall tie survey is the only way the level of corrosion, if any, can be discovered.

Our written wall tie reports, containing digital images of the ties, as seen through the surveyor’s boroscope, carry the credibility and the detail this important defect demands.
