Wall Tie Evolution & Corrosion – 3 Decades of Change
They may be typically hidden from sight, but when it comes to wall tie inspection & replacement, what exactly should we be doing and what are the modern approaches to detecting, reporting and replacing old wall ties? How have we adapted to issues surrounding retrofit insulation and responded to an increasing need for remedial wall tie work on modern buildings? In addition, with the Green Homes Grant now fully up and running and seemingly a hunger from homeowners to improve energy efficiency within their homes, are we potentially doing it wrong?!?
To find out more, grab your cup of coffee or tea, sit back and why not get yourself a cup of tea, sit back and watch Bryan Hindle as he shares his expert advice on on cavity wall ties and how things have changed and the challenges that have come from these changes.
