Cavity wall ties are the support fixtures that are used to connect and bind the outer wall of a cavity to the inner wall of a property. Occasionally, sufficient wall ties aren’t used at the time of the build or the type used has deteriorated, so cavity wall tile replacements are required to ensure the structural integrity of the building is upheld.
If you need cavity wall tie replacements in Guildford or Crawley, contact Prokil to arrange for one of our experienced wall tie replacement specialists to do a site visit and assess the work required. Contact us today to arrange this with our team!
What are the Causes of Cavity Wall Tile Failure?
Wall tie replacements are commonly required because moisture and air have come into contact with the wall ties causing them to rust and expand. Additionally, in the build of older houses mild steel or galvanised steel cavity wall ties were used which aren’t durable materials so can wear over time. Both materials tend to rust and they are susceptible to corrosion.
As standard, in new-build houses, stainless steel cavity wall ties are used as they are highly corrosion-resistant with improved strength.
Wall Tie Replacement Process
The good news is that cavity wall tie replacements are easy to replace and once we have installed the new ones they will come with a guarantee to give you peace of mind.
The process all Prokil wall tie replacement contractors follow is:
Drill a small hole into the brickwork and insert a mini camera
Inspect the tiles and access whether a complete wall tile replacement is required or if only a targeted area needs repair
Provide a competitive quote for the cavity wall tie replacement
We will install our propriety remedial tying system as required
"My company recently relocated to a larger building due to expansion. However, after a short time we suspected we might have a damp problem due to a musty damp smell. We contacted Prokil who attended our offices the next day and confirmed our worst fears. Prokil provided us with a competitive quote which we were happy to accept and the works were carried out within the week. I would recommend Prokil any time. Many thanks,"

"We have been extremely impressed with the team who carried out the work. They were punctual and arrived in good time for us to get to work, and explained what they were doing at each stage. We felt happy to leave them with the key to lock up if they left before we got home. They were meticulously clean and tidy, even to the point of rinsing their coffee cups at the end of the day! Please pass on our thanks to them all. We have had very prompt and professional service from you all at Prokil, and will be happy to recommend your company to others. Best wishes"
