Many boundary walls are poorly built by people trying to cut costs, and not having the necessary experience and know-how skills base to build it safely.
A perimeter wall is built as a security feature to protect your family, and trying to cut costs and doing a poor job of constructing the wall can lead to it collapsing and seriously injuring a child or animal.
If a wall falls on a child it can cost a lot of money for hospitalization and doctor’s fees. This money would have been better invested in getting your security walls safely and professionally installed by Country Wide Walling.
Bad designs, poor foundations and also the lack of expansion joints and support pillars usually result in boundary walls developing dangerous cracks and/or collapsing.
Walls leaning over, or splitting apart or cracks in plaster, are all indications of a poorly constructed wall, and unfortunately, usually only become noticeable a long time after the builder has left the site. You, as the homeowner believe you received a bargain priced wall, but the old saying “you get what you pay for” applies, and could lead to a loss of a lot more money should a child be badly injured with broken bones and a lengthy hospital stay.
If you are one of these homeowners, you need to keep a careful eye on the wall, and if any cracks appear, or the wall starts leaning over, it is best to pay urgent attention to the problem immediately, before anything serious happens.
The best solution is to tear the wall down, and have it professionally set up in order to not only provide security, but to avoid serious injury to a child, family member, or an animal. In the end, this would be the safest, and most cost effective solution to a dodgy wall.
Always bear in mind that sound engineering principles also need to be applied to the design, manufacture and installation of boundary security walls.
