Section 6: Brick

Mortar wash cap does not provide adequate protection fro the brick.

Trim at kitchen window is rotting and in need of replacement.

This area appears to be getting wet and needs to be reviewed.

This cap that was intended to protect this brick is actually contributing to the system failure. Mortar at this area is in very poor condition.

Lintel in plate rust.

This 5/16″ lintel has grown to 1/2″ in plate rust. This disturbs the mortar joints and cracks the system apart.

Rust stains show the level of moisture intrusion into the system.

This ledge is on the west side of the home and has the same cracks as the front brick assembly.

This is the joint at the house and the brick. This allows bulk water to flow into the brick assembly.
