What Causes External Structural Damage?
External structural damage can be caused by long-term environmental changes, changes in weather, flooding, ground movement, and subsidence. This results in cracks in masonry due to constant weathering, ground movement, or increasing loads. All of this can cause instability, foundation issues, and cracks in walls and much more on your property.
Remember – the longer your external structural damage goes untreated, the greater the risk to the structural integrity of your property. Your home could become damaged so badly that it creates further internal problems that ultimately make your home unliveable.
At Weatherproof, we possess the latest tools and techniques to solve many external structural issues.

Crack Stitching Services
Crack stitching from Weatherproof is a comprehensive cracked wall reinforcement and masonry repair solution for residential and industrial customers in Edinburgh. We have a team of external structural experts who can advise and support you with any structural or building problems you might be experiencing with your property in the Edinburgh area.What does Crack Stitching Involve?
Perfect for vertical cracking, crack stitching involves stainless steel reinforced rods being chemically bonded into bed joints in your property to stitch together cracks on the external structure. The rods are grouted across the external cracks, which redistributes tensile forces. This stabilises the structure of your property as well as strengthens and reconnects masonry and cracks. After the process is complete, the rods will be hidden and your external structural façade will look smooth, new, and strong.What are the Benefits of Crack Stitching Solutions?
