Helitec Structural Services were instructed to complete permanent building repairs to this semi-detached Marrickville cottage. The building needed fixing cracked walls and was suffering from various structural issues with external and internal wall cracking, rolling sandstone footings, deformed walls and support pillars and cracked archways, doors and window openings
Included in our spec was installing addition roofing supports in the attic above bedroom 1/bedroom 2. We also squared off and relined the attic/study room walls making the area functional.
Because the sandstone footing were rolling and causing the masonry walls to move Helitec completed partial underpinning which included excavating under the sandstone and pouring concrete pads.
Verandah Wall & Pillars
The verandah side walls and pillars were cracked and misaligned. This meant the walls were unstable and subject to excessive movement. We used Helifix proprietary strengthening systems to repair the faults.
Entry Door and Arch
The front door had suffered cracking and needed repair. Helitec craftsmen removed cracked bricks and strengthened the doorway. The door opening was rebuilt.
The front bedroom had extensive wall cracking. After chasing out the mortar and inserting stainless steel helical bars with Helifix proprietary cementious grout the walls were permanently restored to their former strength.
The two hallway arches had cracks and deformities. Helitec were able to successfully restore the arches to their original condition using Helifix masonry repair systems and proprietary resins. Our expert craftsmen can restore the most difficult building component.
