General Masonry Work in YO31
Posted 20 September 2011
Job Description:
We have minor cracking to one corner of this property which is 11 years old. The crack follows the line of the cavity to the gable wall and according to the RICS survey we have had carried out is thought likely to have been caused by either shrinkage or expansion to the gable external wall. It is thought that this has arisen due to the SW elevation of this part of the wall which is subject to considerable solar gain. We require a quote to repair either to insert a vertical expansion joint in the gable wall (which we are advised can look out of place in a domestic situation) or to employ a relatively weak lime mortar mix to allow for some movement to the brickwork joints. The alternate cracked bricks require removing and replacing and the cracks to the mortar courses repointing at the same time. Several bricks require replacement.

- Customer type: an individual/homeowner
- Reason for requesting quotes: the work is required but maybe dependent on the quotes
