Wall tie failure and inadequacy, if not addressed, can lead to catastrophic collapse.
Wall tie corrosion is a common cause of wall tie failure in coastal areas. Walls suffering from failed, omitted or inadequate wall tie systems are most vulnerable during high winds and seismic events.
There are Helifix remedial ties for all situations and materials. DryFix ties are probably the quickest and most cost-effective ties available. Requiring no grouts or resins, they are simply power-driven into both leaves, via a small pilot hole, using a special attachment which leaves the tie recessed below the face.
