We always recommend professional intervention when determining a structural problem and investigating for the corrosion of cavity wall ties. Various methods of investigation are used such as a visual inspection of the masonry and mortar courses, measurements of datum lines to determine bowing of load bearing members, boroscope investigation and in some cases removal of masonry brickwork.


In most cases a boroscope investigation can be undertaken. Holes are drilled into various areas of the masonry brickwork and are blown clean with an air gun. A boroscope cctv camera is then inserted into the cavity of the wall and the images are recorded to media in order to provide to the client of the property. 

We can also provide the services of our own in house qualified structural engineer.
