Masonry stabilisation gives porous walls support again
Our restorative method increases load-bearing capacity and makes walls ready for new demands.
Brick and quarry stone walls riven with cracks and showing considerable evidence of fissures or large cavities often fail to fulfil the demands of repurposing a building or adding additional load (e.g. as required with conversions, extensions or the addition of another storey). By means of synthetic resin injections, fissures and cavities can be filled in and the grouting strengthened. This leads to an improvement in mechanical properties.
In the process of carrying out masonry stabilisation two things are happening at the same time. Firstly, cavities and fissures are filled; secondly, the penetration of the porous joint grouting with the artificial resin results in the bricks being bonded together. Larger cavities are filled beforehand with artificially modified cement. Extensive experience in this specific area combined with a good instinct for identifying the properties of the masonry to be stabilised are both significant factors in determining success. Play it safe when strengthening the masonry and trust in the routine and expertise of the mibag specialists.
