Helical Bar/ Brick Stitching

Helical Bar

Cracks in masonry, brick and stone are the result of several factors. But by using a top quality chemical resin and stainless steel helical bars they can be repaired with no further damage to the wall, no costly or lengthy re-construction work and no inconvenience to the building's inhabitant

Stainless steel helical bars are chemically bonded into horizontal slots, machine cut into bed joints, which stitch across the crack. When installed, these bars evenly redistribute tensile forces over the reforced area to stabilise the structure. This is sometimes known as brick stitching

On completion, the bars and the chemical resin are  concealed by repointing and retaining the original character of the wall.

We specialise in all types of pointing and general brick and stone repair including waterproofing of external walls with breathable silicone.
