Structural Repairs

What are Structural Repairs?

We carry out structural repairs to restore, reinforce, or strengthen the load-bearing components of a building or structure. These repairs are essential when there is damage, deterioration, or weaknesses in the structural elements, which can compromise the stability, safety, or integrity of a building. These repairs can involve a range of interventions, such as fixing cracks in walls or foundations, reinforcing weakened or damaged beams, columns, or walls, repairing damaged concrete or masonry, or addressing issues caused by subsidence or settlement. These repairs are required to ensure the structural soundness of the building and to prevent further damage or potential hazards.

When are Structural Repairs required?

Structural repairs are necessary in various situations when a building’s load-bearing components exhibit damage, deterioration, or structural weaknesses. Common instances include the presence of visible cracks in walls, foundations, or structural elements, which can compromise the building’s stability. Structural repairs may also be required when there is evidence of water damage, such as leaks or rot, that weakens structural materials. Additionally, issues related to foundation settlement, subsidence, or seismic activity can demand remedial work to restore a building’s integrity. Timely and professional attention to these conditions is crucial to ensure the safety and longevity of the structure.

How do I know if I need it?

Determining the need these repairs involves recognising visible signs of structural damage or weaknesses in a building. These signs may include cracks in walls, foundations, or structural components, especially if they are large, extensive, or expanding. Visible sagging or settling of floors, walls, or ceilings can also indicate structural issues. Water damage, such as leaks or rot, can weaken structural materials and may require repairs. Furthermore, if there are signs of foundation settlement, subsidence, or structural movement, like doors and windows that no longer close properly or noticeable tilting, this can also be a strong indicator of the need for remedial work. In such cases, it is advisable to consult with qualified professionals such as Shield Preservation who can assess the extent of the damage and recommend the necessary repairs to ensure the safety and integrity of the building.
