Peter Cox Property Insurance provides against the worrying risk associated with cavity wall ties affected by corrosion, covering a full range of properties from flats, to houses and mansions. Despite the various different home insurance and contents insurance available, not all property insurance policies will cover cavity wall ties and are unlikely to insure against cavity wall ties affected by corrosion. Different insurance policies will vary in what is and is not covered.
Why should you insure your cavity wall ties? To start, wall tie corrosion is very common problem in properties due to the corrosive-prone material used for wall ties and as a result can affect the strength and stability of the property.
To maintain their strength and prevent corrosion occurring in the first place, cavity wall ties were galvanised with a zinc-based coating but due to industry standards not being maintained, cavity wall ties used during this period were more susceptible to deterioration. Not all properties built prior the 90s will be affected with corroded wall ties or will need to be replaced but it is more frequently associated with older properties.
Having unstable cavity wall ties can lead to further structural repairs, resulting in cracks, structural movement or potentially lead to the collapse of the external sections, which can potentially lead to costly repairs. Having an insurance policy in place gives reassurance for you that your property is protected.
