What is crack stitching?
Cracks in your masonry aren’t just an eyesore. By allowing rainwater and cold air to trickle in, they can permanently damage the structure of your home and end up costing you thousands in repairs.
Crack stitching is one of the best ways to prevent this. A cost-effective alternative to a full brick replacement, it involves drilling holes across the cracks, then inserting the stainless steel reinforcing bars or rods and grouting them into place. This creates a strong structural bond across the crack, helping to distribute the load of the wall more evenly and prevent further cracking or movement.
At Prokil, we carry out masonry crack stitching on both residential and commercial buildings. Our skilled specialists will perform the necessary repairs quickly and effectively, lengthening the lifespan of your wall and saving you from the cost of more extensive repairs in the future.
