STRUCTURAL MAINTENANCE

Building Works

Danford Brewer & Ives are structural maintenance specialists in Yorkshire, Teesside & Cheshire. Sometimes cracks can appear in buildings because of movement which can happen as the result of many different reasons such as; recent building work, foundation movement or perhaps the corrosion of cavity wall ties.

STRUCTURAL MAINTENANCE

As there are so many possibilities as to why the movement has occurred, your property will most likely need to be thoroughly inspected by a fully qualified structural engineer.

Once the engineer has found the cause of the problem, Danford Brewer & Ives will begin work to provide the best solution to the problem.

An example of just some of the repair work Danford Brewer & Ives can undertake is:

  • Cavity Wall Tie Replacement
  • Lateral Restraint for walls, floors and roofs
  • Masonry Reinforcement
  • Lintel Repairs
  • Timber Resin Repairs or Reinforcement

Buildings of all ages are subject to movement or have design or workmanship defects. Such problems can result in unstable facades or cracked and damaged structural members. We offer a range of proven repair options which, if introduced in good time, can help you avoid the need for costly rebuilding.

Our strengthening and restraint methodologies are applicable for all types of brick structures including traditional load-bearing brickwork and modern brick clad buildings. In determining the correct method of repair, we take account of the variable nature of the base materials and utilise appropriate fixing technologies to ensure that loads are properly transferred between the structural elements.

If you have any concerns about the structural state of your home, please contact Danford Brewer & Ives for their expert advice.
