Brick Veneer - Wall Tie Replacement Australia

What are Wall Ties for Brick Veneer?

Wall ties are the galvanised steel or stainless steel metal that connects a brick veneer and brick wall together. Brick ties provide structural strength and are common of double brick constructions. As with structural bricks, mortar, lintels and arch bars, wall ties, can decay when exposed to the elements for too long. When a cavity wall and ties become damaged, there is risk present.

One of the main reasons why wall tie damage can become so serious is that when cavity wall ties corrode, they weaken. This in turn can result in the external skin of brickwork moving over time, cracking brick veneer construction and destabilising the whole facade. Damage in this area of the home can be very serious, posing a risk of harm to the inhabitants of the house.

The scale of wall tie remediation depends on the extent of the damage, and on other factors such as the location. For example, a seaside home will often have a greater propensity for  corrosion. Without proper examination there is no way of knowing whether only a few bricks will need to be repointed or replaced, or whether (especially where rising damp is present or likely to occur) an entire replacement wall may ultimately be the best solution.
