Most homes and commercial properties in 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
Bulging or Bowing Walls or Brickwork
