At Prokil, we supply cavity wall ties for Southampton properties. All cavity wall ties we provide are made from high-quality steel for a durable finish in your property. Cavity wall ties are constructed from metal and bind the inside and outside wall or leafs the house together. Most homes have brickwork cavity walls that are two separate walls tied together. The cavity wall ties are inbuilt into the cement joints during construction.
Cavity wall ties need replacing due to deterioration and corrosion over time. Occasionally, we find that some properties have not been built with the right amount of cavity wall ties. Prokil Southampton has the solution for every property and we will fit retro replacement wall ties. If you leave your damaged/deteriorating cavity wall ties, this could have serious ramifications for the stability of your property with collapse a real possibility.

Why cavity wall ties fail?
There are many reasons why cavity wall ties fail with water damage being a key reason. The water will wear away at the wall ties which will lead to rust and eventual failure. All retro replacement ties are made from stainless steel which is one of the strongest materials and are resistant to corrosion and rust.
Damage to your wall is another key reason why cavity wall ties fail. Once the outer layer has cracked, water has the chance to seep into the wall which will damage your cavity wall ties.

Act fast if you have wall tie damage
If there is wall tie failure in your property, damage to the outer leaf of the cavity wall will speed up the process of wall tie failure. Once the outer layer becomes cracked, water can penetrate through the wall and cause serious damage to inner layers and the cavity wall ties.
