Wall Ties – West Yorkshire
Wall ties are used in cavity walls to tie the external and internal walls together. Generally the ends of wall ties are designed to lock into the cement. Houses that are over 40 years and built using cavity walls often require the replacement of wall ties. This is done by simply drilling in new wall ties next to the previous wall ties. This is a reasonably quick job but can save a lot of hassle later on. If old wall ties are allowed to weaken or disintegrate then the wall may crack. Fixing a severely cracked wall is not an easy job. So it is important to make sure your wall ties are doing their job correctly.
