Crack Stitching

A common solution to a common problem which requires expert skill and help to bring your structure long-term, permanent and effective health.

WHAT IS CRACK STITCHING?

Crack stitching, as the name implies, is the masonry repair of cracks which at times appear in walls. Cracks in walls appear due to a number of different reasons such as seasonal changes, water damage, trees in close proximity, soil instability, inadequate home settling and more. Crack stitching involves the retrofitting of crack stitching bars which are then grouted across the cracks in the wall as a means to reconnect them and bring the masonry back to full health.

HOW CAN WE HELP WITH YOUR CRACKED WALL?

As industry leading experts with over 35 years of experience we are specialist in crack stitching repairs. We are extremely familiar with the crack stitching process which entails cutting slots into the wall which has suffered from cracking and inserting stainless steel bars into these slots. Grout is used as a means to interlock the bars and chemically bond them to the wall which in turn stitches the crack back together and reconnects the masonry. Crack stitching is an extremely detailed process which requires unique knowledge and technical machinery if the job is to be carried out efficiently and with due safety.

    How do you repair cracks in brick walls?

    The process starts by identifying the affected area. The grout layer between the affected brickwork is then cut into and helical bars are inserted into the brickwork which bind the wall together. The grout is replaced, returning the wall to its original statement. This whole process stabilises the building and the products used have a 10-year manufacturer’s warranty.
