This beautiful home in Newtown, along with many others in the street, had been affected by tree roots. Over time the building had received patch repairs and gyprock sheeting was used to hide the internal cracks. Helitec were called in to undertake the terrace restoration.
The owners decided that best solution would be to strengthen the masonry walls by using the Helifix helical bar remedial system. Once the building was stabilised the resultant damage to floors, frames, ceilings and cornices from the tree roots was also repaired.
Once completed the interior and exterior walls, ceilings and cornices were repainted giving this wonderful terrace and new lease on life.
