To the manor reborn

Masonry cracks, bulging of a rear gable elevation and delamination of the brick skin in the Elizabethan Morely Old Hall in Norfolk have been tackled with the Helibeam system from Helifix. BowTies were installed externally through the wall and secured to the internal roof joists before being bonded into the masonry. Cracks were stitched with HeliBars bonded into channelled-out mortar beds above the first-floor windows using HeliBond cementitious grout. When securing the brick skin, 1m-long CemTies were installed at an angle so as not to mark the brick faces, with grout installed simultaneously.

After re-pointing, none of the repairs were visible.
