What are Wall Ties?

Wall ties, also called brick ties, are metal strips or bars that tie the inner and outer parts of cavity walls together. They are an essential part of cavity wall construction, helping improve stability and protect properties from the elements.

Assessing Wall Tie Failure

Most homes and commercial properties in Farnborough, Cobham and Guildford will require replacement wall ties at some point. This can either be because builders didn’t use enough wall ties during construction or because over time, corrosion has caused wall ties to fail. It can be hard to tell if you need wall tie replacement, but Downs Property Care uses specialist equipment to assess the condition of your walls and diagnose any potential issues.

If not caught early, wall tie failure causes visible damage, such as:

  • Horizontal Cracks in Outer Walls

  • Cracks in Rendering

  • Internal Cracks

  • Bulging or Bowing Walls or Brickwork

If you think your wall ties have failed, you must get a professional inspection before the issue escalates. Our team is on hand to provide a thorough inspection along with expert advice and services to remedy the problem.
