Brickwork Repairs - Flashings & Lintels
Panel of brickwork lost from face of these Units – brick ties rusted away
Brickwork is a very common building medium that quite often needs attention. Items associated with brickwork such as wall ties, steel lintels, arch bars, flashings, weepholes, membranes and concrete can need to be replaced or repaired.
Brickwork can expand and crack, fret and bow over time which can cause unsightly and possibly dangerous areas of brick and mortar in and around your building structure.
Any metal or even galvanised steel fixtures used in the construction of brick facings can eventually rust out and need replacing to ensure the continued stability of the walls.
