Cavity Wall Ties & Wall Tie Replacement

Cavity wall ties can suffer from corrosion due to a breakdown of their protective coating.

Wall tie corrosion can extensively damage external walls and could, in some cases, make a building unstable.

Cavity wall ties are generally made of mild steel and inserted in the cavity space linking the external wall of a property to its internal wall.

There are a number of signs to help determine if your property is affected:

  • Pagoda effect of the ridge tiles
  • Horizontal Cracks Usually at high level in the mortar, caused by expansion of wall ties.
  • Distortion of soffit timbers
  • Bulging brickwork caused by a corroded snapped wall ties. This can make your property unstable.

DTS surveyors can carry out a detailed inspection to establish the need for remedial work. The surveyor will:

  • Complete a thorough examination of your property, inspecting random wall ties with an endoscope.
  • Identify cracks and damage to brickwork.
  • Provide the most effective treatment for wall tie failure.
