Areas Affected

The confirmed areas that have been affected by pyrite-heave are mostly concentrated in North Leinster particularly North County Dublin, Offaly, Meath and Louth.

Nonetheless some single cases have arisen throughout Ireland, in particular in western counties where the aggregate has come from blasted stone quarries rather than from sand/gravel ones. Blockwork breakdown has been noted for many years as “Mundic” which is in fact pyrite degradation albeit in blockwork rather than floor infill material.

If you think your property falls within any of these areas and if you are concerned that your property may have Pyrite or you can identify some or all of the tell-tale signs please contact us or book a survey.
