MacLennan have been experts in designing, installing and guaranteeing systems for over 30 years.
MacLennan have been trained installers of the helical system since 1995. The helical system can be used in a variety of ways and in many circumstances.
It can be used as crack-stitch to reconnect masonry that has failed due to thermal movement or shrinkage. Helical systems can also be used to repair a failed lintel using a masonry beam to support the masonry and distribute the structural loads away from the opening without the need to take down and rebuilt, often savings thousands of pounds and major disruption.
When a property suffers from foundational movement due to trees, drains, seasonal earth movement, mining areas or even bomb damage settlement, our structural engineers can complete a site survey and propose a specification and quotation to get the property's superstructure and substructure repaired.
The signs to look out for are stepped/vertical cracking that is larger at the top than the bottom that suggests that some of the property is moving or sinking. If you are unsure or would like to discuss your project requirements further, please contact the MacLennan team.
