The Most Knowledgeable Helifix Approved Installer Company in Australia. Our many years of industry experience produce repairs that stand the test of time, ensuring your property retains its value from sympathetic repair techniques.
CAVITY WALL TIE REPLACEMENT
Due the marine environment along Sydney's coast line, wall tie corrosion has become a common issue of ties installed during construction. The ties Helicrete use are manufactured by Helifix, using high quality marine grade 316 stainless steel material, which won't corrode.
Using sympathetic and hidden repair methods, which will reinstate the original structural integrity, Helicrete is able to effectively repair your cracked masonry in your bridges, brick arches, heritage listed buildings, residential and commercial buildings internal or external.
How a building was constructed, the age of the building, the soil conditions and the weather can all cause buildings to suffer problems with subsidence, cracked brickwork, bowing or leaning walls. Helifix repairs will be required when, there is the lack of lateral support due to the building's age, the property was built on reactive soils, such as clay, and how the building was initially built.
Expansion joints may need to be created from defects such as thermal expansion and contraction, brick growth, foundation movement. There are various methods for the creation of expansion/movement/control joints. All involve cutting through the face of the masonry with the use of cutting saws, grinders or even chain saws with diamond teeth. We carry all the specialist cutting equipment.
