    Iv just bought a large detached property and has some historic movement

    I want to secure it for any further movemnt by using lateral restraint tie rods with resin bond.

    Can anyone guide me where i can buy the rods cheaply or any kits availabe.

    Iv seen kits on line and also set of 5 rods about £200 plus.

    Also if anyone could advice me a cheaper alternative would be much apreciated

    There are so many different methods and materials its impossible to comment without detail of construction and situation.

    Property house is made of solid wall construction and has had some historic movement.

    Structural engineer recommendation is lateral restraint rod ties with resin bond to stop it moving any further. The rods will be secured to 2 or 3 joists

    Hope this makes sense
