Structural Crack Repairs London
Building Response Ltd undertake structural crack repairs all over the city of London.
Structural crack repairs are necessary when a building suffers cracking of a structural nature; this could be in the form of a fracture through the solid brick wall, or a jagged crack through the inner or outer cavity wall. Structural cracks can occur anywhere on the superstructure of the building and are almost always the result of stress.
It is important to consider what has caused the structural crack before repairing it, because a repair does not mean that the stress cause has been resolved. Repairing a structural crack is not a simple process but at Building Response Ltd we try to minimise the disruption to the rest of the building by undertaking the structural repairs in a timely and safe manor. We may use cherry pickers to get up to the point of the building where the structural crack has extended or begun, scaffolding may be necessary, or where safe to do so, ladders can be used.
The actual structural crack repairs are often quite simple to undertake (depending on how vulnerable the cracking has made the building); it is the access as always that requires the planning.

Our primary call out would involve assessment of the structural cracking to determine the best course of action and establish how to access the areas suffering from the cracking. We may or may not determine that assessment by a structural engineer is necessary; this will depend upon the extent of the structural cracking, the impact the structural crack may have on the building and surrounding buildings, and importantly the cause of the structural cracking in the first place.
Once it has been established that the structural crack can be repaired, we will provide a specification of works and quotation of cost detailing how and what is required to actually repair the structural crack. Such methods may involve the angle grinding away of mortar, the insertion of helix bars, the thixotropic resin injection of the cracking, and finally the making good with a flexible grout. Various colours can be used to ensure aesthetic continuity of the finish in comparison to its surroundings. There are many ways to tackle structural cracking; best way to find out how is to speak to the experts!
