Collapsed wall update.

Brick-Tie Preservation senior wall tie technician Stuart Lattimer has now started work on repairing the collapsed wall in Horsforth, Leeds.

With the scaffold up, the full extent of the damage can be seen and in the video below I talk you through the proposed repairs.

I’ll be on site again later this week to show you the progress of the work, which initially includes Helifix ties, re-enforcement using Helibar and then Cintec tie installation the following week.

Dry Rot.
