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 the answers and to learn much more, join us and Bryan Hindle of Brick-Tie Limited for the first of our 2021 webinars on Thursday 28th January 2021 from 9-10am, as he raises awareness and shares his expert advice on how wall tie inspection/replacement has evolved and the diverse approaches to wall tie remedial work.
