What are Cavity Wall Ties?
Most homes built in the last hundred years are of cavity wall construction. The external walls are built of two leaves of brickwork held together with steel ties referred to as cavity wall ties and this makes a warmer and drier home.
Prior to 1980 wall ties used in the construction of houses were of inferior quality and were inadequately protected from corrosion. Thousands of them are still there and it is when these cavity wall ties begin to fail that they can compromise the structural integrity of the building and if left for a long period of time, can lead to very costly structural repairs.
What are the signs of Wall Tie failure?
Characteristic signs of corrosion include horizontal cracking of the mortar bed joints in which the ties are laid, caused by the expansion of the metal during corrosion. Mild steel ties have a shorter service life than the brickwork in which they were placed and will need replacing with stainless steel wall ties which do not corrode, ensuring a more permanent solution.
It is often said that any property built before 1981 may be at risk from wall tie corrosion and associated problems. After this time, the use of stainless steel and higher spec galvanised ties have reduced, though not removed, the level of concern.
