Lateral Restraint Ties & Bed Joint Reinforcement, Solve Another Bow & More Lintel Failure!

At Newman’s we utilise modern methods of masonry repair to restore bowing walls and lintel failure to name but a few structural defects.

Our specialist services were called upon by a building surveyor managing the refurbishment of a Victorian built 1890’s semi detached house in Croydon, South London.

Bowing Building London

After completing our survey it was discovered that there was extensive outward movement to the front and gable elevations and with the loft conversion in progress the additional stress to the masonry was sure to cause severe movement.

Bed Joint Reinforcement

Over 30 Lateral restraint ties were used on the gable elevation alone into the first floor and the new loft floor to restrain the outward movement combined with bed joint reinforcement ensuring there would be no further outward movement.

Lateral Restraint Ties Installed

With the bed joint reinforcement being installed front the front elevation wrapped around the gable and into the rear elevation the lintel failure was repaired and the bowing restrained.
