Structural & Masonry Repairs

Structural Repairs and Helifix Crack Stitching

Brick-Tie has specialised in Structural & Masonry Repairs since the mid 1980’s, that’s over 35 years of continuous trading. which means we’ve helped countless clients solve their structural problems.

Experience is important, because Yorkshire’s housing stock is amongst  the most diverse in the world, with stone, brick, timber and steel used to build it. It’s aging too, so it’s not surprising that structural repairs and crack stitching are a common requirement as age, poor workmanship, wind and rain takes its toll. That said, we also work on quite modern and new building too, when cracks come to light, soon after construction.

Working alongside Yorkshire’s best structural engineers and surveyors has refined our skill and knowledge.  As a result, our accurate diagnosis of structural problems, combined with the best available masonry repairs team, mean our work has stood the test of time.

Don’t worry, you’re in safe hands with Brick-Tie, we succeed by meeting your needs; never forgetting that a broken building is also someone’s home.

What is crack-stitching and how does it work?

Wall Tie Surveys and Wall Tie Reports

Are these cracks or bulges really as bad as you’ve been told? In many cases we are delighted to reassure customers, that even the scariest looking cracks and bulges can be economically fixed, using Brick-Tie’s range of structural repairs.

Ground movement (subsidence) repairs can cost huge sums, but thankfully this is usually an insured risk. However, very many other causes of structural movement are not insured; but we can help.

From localised crack stitching ties, through to advanced sock anchors, tie bars and movement joints, we know the finer details, advantages and pitfalls of all available methods. 

Better still we’ll share that knowledge with you so that you can see that we’ve achieved the best cost and performance balance. We’ll recommend the most appropriate structural repairs for you, your house and your pocket.
