A.R.S. provide structural crack stitching solutions for cracked walls and structural stabilisation issues. Repairs return structural strength to equal to or greater than original. A.R.S utilise Helifix helical crack stitching and underpinning to deliver the perfect solution to cracked walls, unstable footings and foundations. Save thousands on rebuilding costs and simply repair the existing structure.
Traditional methods to remedy major building defects typically required extensive and expensive works or to knock down or rebuild completely. Using remedial techniques such as Helical Wall Stitching, we guarantee to make your building stronger and more secure than it was before. Typically the integrity of the repair will remain structurally secure in excess of the building’s life span / usage expectancy.
The Right Approach:
Every cracked wall is unique and requires a specialised solution. A.R.S conduct site visit and assessment to determine cause of movement and cracking. Causes can range from broken sewer or storm water pipes, adjacent trees, recent excavations, extreme weather events or even earth tremors and cause significant structural damage. Critically, much of the initial appraisal must be done by visual observation. Experience in knowing where to look and what to look for is vital and can make the difference of tens of thousands of dollars. Infrared as well as CCTV inspection of below ground pipes may be recommended or core drill sampling or use of ground penetrating radar.
