Structural Repair brisbane
Structural repairs are defined as any repair that is necessary to maintain the integrity of the structure of a building. This can include repairing or replacing foundations, walls, beams, roofing, and supports. Structural repairs also encompassload-bearing walls, pillars, and columns. In some cases, decorative elements such as cornices and moldings may also be considered part of the structure of a building.
The Importance of Structural Repairs
Structural repairs are important because they ensure the safety of the occupants of a building. A well-maintained building will be structurally sound and able to withstand the elements. This is especially important in areas that experience extreme weather conditions such as high winds, floods, or earthquakes. Buildings that have not been properly maintained can be dangerous places to be during these conditions.
As concrete ages you may need to provide additional structural strength to your building. When strengthening concrete it is important to correctly calculate the requirements and use the appropriate materials under the guidance of a Structural Engineer.
Many different causes can lead to cracks in concrete and brick buildings. While these may not immediately weaken the structure, they do open up the building
to moisture, which may lead to further structural damage. A flexible substance such as polyurethane is injected into the crack and provides waterproofing while binding the surfaces.
With crack stitching the mortar is removed, Profiled stainless steel bars are inserted and then resin grouted.
