Is your house cracking up? Made it through winter and now you want to get the house airtight and weatherproof? You may need crack injection and/ or brick stitching.
Cracking at mitre corners is very common in masonry. Fix it with brick stitching.
First, the mortar material in between the bricks should be removed. This will provide longer serving results for the repair. Next, the joints are lined with the steel reinforcement. These elements are either galvanised or stainless steel.
The stitches are installed as regularly as required.
With the brick stitches in, next is the final tamp point.
Replacement mortar is reinstated, making the repair complete.
