This is very common on end gable walls of terraced housing and old properties where the floor joists are running front to back of the property. With the floor joist running parallel to the wall there is no connection of the wall into the rest of the building to complete the structural diaphragm of the property. MacLennan can prepare a quotation where we connect the wall back to floor and ceiling joist and where necessary also connect the wall to internal stud partition walls or spine walls.
Delamination is a form of bowing which happens in large thick solid walls where the internal skin has come away from the external skin leaving the rubble filled void in the middle of the wall to drop giving you the impression of bulging from the outside but no structural damage to the inside. We can reconnect the external masonry back to the internal masonry avoiding the need of a costly rebuild.
