My husband and I just bought a house in Provence and we need to fix a large crack that is on the outside of the wall. We have been trying to find out where to by a 1 and 1/8 inch, around 40 foot long (12 meters) threaded rod (like rebar) to put between the two metal ties that will go on the house. I can’t seem to find it any where. We will even go with 3 or 4 smaller bars and weld them together. Can anybody help? We are desperate and have looked everywhere in the provencial region. Does any one deal with metal or have a shop we can buy it from or any other ideas?
Here is the info I said that I would send to you (on my blog comment).
1. For the nuts (30mm) we got them from SIFRAM. Their address is : 4 Rue du Saint Laurent, BP 70085, Saint Herblain Telephon: 02.40.92.17.71 I don't have an internet site for them, though, even though that's were we found them.
2. For the threaded rod. We got that from http://www.tige-filetee.com/ also known as SEC. They are in France-the pieces we bought were very long and they did ship them to us for a reasonable price.
3. For the cle. We got that from:
Hope this helps let me know how your project comes out!
