Bespoke Brick Wall Crack Repairs

Brickwork crack repairs are necessary when a brick structure of any kind begins showing signs of cracking. Though cracks in bricks in exterior walls can sometimes be purely cosmetic, they can also be a sign of severe structural issues. Structural cracks can appear anywhere on a building’s exterior at any time, typically as a result of stress or as natural movement of the surrounding structure over time.

Establishing how to repair cracks in brick walls means first examining the extent of the damage and considering its cause. Filling cracks in brickwork can be relatively simple, though actually fixing cracks in bricks to prevent future damage from occurring is a more complex job. Precisely why the DIY approach is to be avoided, unless you have plenty of experience repairing masonry cracks.

If you suspect your exterior walls are in need of maintenance or repairs, contact a member of the team at Brickpoint London anytime for an obligation-free consultation.

Filling in Brick Cracks: How Does it Work?

Our bespoke brick wall repair services are tailored in accordance with the unique requirements of each individual client. However, every project begins with a detailed inspection and assessment of the property, in order to determine an appropriate course of action.

Depending on the extent of the structural cracking, it may be necessary to carefully consider its cause and the extent to which your property’s superstructure is safe or otherwise. Brick crack stitching at its most basic level is relatively simple, but doesn’t actually address (or even identify) what caused the problem in the first place. In addition, crack stitching brickwork should be carried out in a way that ensures the cracks don’t become visible again shortly afterwards.

Once we have determined the requirements of your walls, we’ll begin the process of removing and replacing (or repairing) the damaged brickwork. Specialist materials will be used to fill in the brick cracks, which we will ensure seamlessly match their surroundings for a flawless finish. Health and safety is our number one priority from start to finish, and we’ll keep you informed of the status of the project throughout.

Whether ready to go ahead or simply considering brick crack repairs, we’re standing by to take your call. Contact Brickpoint London anytime to arrange your obligation-free initial consultation.

What Causes Brick Cracking?

Cracked bricks and walls can be caused by a variety of issues – some of which are more serious and potentially dangerous than others. Common examples include the following:
• Lintel Failure – generally attributed to the removal of doors and windows on period properties
• Subsidence – a potentially serious structural issue that should always be investigated
• Thermal Cracking – cracking may occur due to the natural movement of materials when exposed to changing temperatures
• Lateral Restraint – also most commonly associated with period properties, which can result in internal and external bowing
Prior to patching up your cracked brickwork, we’ll conduct a full assessment to help you identify what caused the damage in the first place. If it is necessary to call in a structural engineer, we’ll point you in the direction of a contractor you can trust.

Don’t ignore the early warning signs of what could be a severe structural issue – call Brickpoint London anytime to organise an inspection of your property.
