Cavity Wall Ties

What are Cavity wall ties?

Cavity Wall Ties – A ‘cavity’ is the space between two sections or layers of an external wall.  Cavity Wall Ties are small metal fixings which bind inner and outer ‘leafs’ or sections of a property wall.  This greatly improves the structural stability of the building as a whole with the two independent brickwork cavity walls being tied together.

Does My Property Have Them? Cavity wall ties have been in use since the 1920’s so if your property was build after this, it is highly likely you do.  They are installed during construction and are an important part of the building process.

Problems – Over time, these wall ties can corrode, break, come loose, or become weakened, which can be risky for the building itself.  If old ties are left unattended, the consequences can be systemic and far-reaching.

Luckily, No. 1 Home is on hand with a vast pool of knowledge and experience to provide the most effective and efficient solutions.

    Inspection – The first step in discovering whether you need replacement ties is to find the affected areas and ascertain the extent of the damaged or ineffective articles. Our tradesperson will start by drilling a small hole into the outer leaf of the building, which gives us access to the cavity within. Through the use of a small CCTV unit, we can feed a small camera into the cavity and take a look around.

If you think you might need replacement cavity wall ties in Bournemouth or Dorset, all you need to do is call our team and we will happily send one of our members out to assess the situation.
