The problem/cause of cracking: Joists and beams in this property were severely affected by dry rot. The walls had to be stabilised with anchors before the affected timbers could be safely removed and replaced. As can be seen on the elevation below there was significant cracking and the walls were generally quite unstable.
Wall stabilisation actions: On the elevation shown above anchors were installed at 1 metre vertical centres as indicated by the red lines.
On this job the lintel over the large door needed to be replaced. The anchors immediately over the door were installed prior to removal of the old lintel. Two pairs of anchors were installed.
