Due the marine environment of Sydney, wall tie corrosion has become a common issue of ties installed during construction. The ties Helicrete use are manufactured using high quality marine grade 316 stainless steel material, which won't corrode.
There are many causes of concrete cancer such as lack of coverage around the reinforcing steel, magnesite topping exposed to moisture and poorly installed waterproofing. As the embedded steel corrodes it expands in volume and causes spalling of the surrounding concrete, often referred to as concrete cancer.
The most common need for lintel replacement is from corrosion, which results in lifting and cracking of masonry or concrete around the embedded steel lintel. We can replace your corroded lintels for new Galvanised or Stainless Steel.
Restumping involves replacing the stumps that hold up the house or property. When the stumps move from their original position this can cause problems such as structural building cracks and floor movement.
Helicrete can carry out a range of heritage restoration work from re-pointing to brick replacement, replacing timber windows and doors, and everything in between. We have worked on building's dating back to circa 1400 AD
The need for restraining bowed and leaning walls is quite a common one. This can be due to several different reasons and one of the more common ones being the lack of lateral restraint when the building was first built, or a change in the site conditions such as close excavation or demolition works.
Expansion joints may need to be created from defects such as thermal expansion and contraction, brick growth, foundation movement. There are various methods for the creation of expansion/movement/control joints. All involve cutting through the face of the masonry with the use of cutting saws, grinders or even chain saws with diamond teeth. We carry all the specialist cutting equipment.
