Melbourne’s unpredictable weather patterns… have caused extensive structural damage to residences throughout many suburbs of Melbourne.
Mr Crack Fix have the wall crack expertise to repair your exterior or interior wall crack problem.
Melbourne’s unpredictable weather patterns of periods of extreme heat & drought, then heavy flooding rainfalls have caused extensive structural damage to residences throughout many suburbs of Melbourne.
Houses in many suburbs of Melbourne (particularly inner Northern) sit on a base of bluestone boulders. As the substrate boulders shift over the years (exaggerated by severe drought and flood) the use of rigid cement slab and brick construction popular in the pre war and post WWII era cannot move with the earth as it adjusts with the climate conditions, resulting in damage to footings, cracked walls and building structures.
Equally; leaking plumbing, poor construction, earth tremors or even heavy traffic vibrations can cause major structural cracks. Masonry may deteriorate, delaminate and fail for a variety of reasons. Most of these problems can be overcome by using various combinations of Helifix remedial ties and masonry reinforcement products and techniques. Helifix products are able to provide secure, lasting connections in all forms of brick, blocks, concrete, stone, timber and traditional local building materials, and have proven to be fully effective in virtually every type of masonry structure from medieval churches to modern tower blocks, bridges and tunnels, to all forms of housing.
Some of the most commonly occurring structural faults can affect every type of commercial and residential property of any age or construction, and a number of Helifix repair strategies may be used to overcome them. Helifix masonry repair strategies involve the external installation of the product in the vast majority of situations and have been designed to ensure minimal disruption to building occupants and leave the repaired building visibly unimpaired.
Using various combinations of Helical ties, fixings and reinforcing rods virtually any situation can be dealt with so do not hesitate to contact us if you have a problem. Mr Crack Fix are authorised Helifix installers.
