Wall ties are simple, cost-effective repairs to brick walls that move.
Does My Home Need Wall Ties?
Wall ties are required when the brick wall(s) on your home visibly move when pressure is applied.
So how can you tell if your home needs wall ties? We call it the “Push Test”. This invlolves going around the exterior of your home and giving each wall a good push. If you notice movement on the wall when you push on it, that wall needs wall ties.
Installation of wall ties is simple! First, we remove a brick that covers a stud on the exterior wall. Next, we fasten the wall to the brick using the wall ties. Finally, we replace the brick that was removed and match the mortar color.
