Helifix System Installed To Residential Property in London, UK

posted in Case Study, Helifix

DEFECT
We were contacted by a residential client who noticed cracking had occurred to the porch and lounge. Our local surveyor visited the property the next day and we provided the client with a full specification, including drawings and a detailed quotation.

SPECIFICATION
We recommended installation of the Helifix system to restore the structural integrity of the masonry where cracking had occurred, offering substantial resistance to further cracking. We installed 32 No. Helifix Dryfix Ties and 4 No. Helifix Cem Ties to the porch. Following this we raked out the existing crack on the left pier and injected it with resin to further secure the masonry. The crack in the front lounge was considered minimal; however, it required repair to provide resistance to further cracking. We installed 4 No. single bands of Helibar horizontally across the existing crack.

COMPLETION
Upon completion of the Helifix repairs we made good all areas of render and plasterwork disturbed by our installation. We completed the project in two days to the client’s satisfaction and provided a 10 year Helifix indemnified guarantee.
