While brick and masonry are still leading choices for construction projects, there can be a number of defects with some of the work. There are a number of common problems that show up on nearly every site. Usually, this is the case due to lacklustre workmanship. The following are examples of the defects to look out for.
Thick bed joints
Firstly, we have bed joints that are unnecessarily thick. These are about as bad as a joint that does not have enough mortar. When they are too thick, they are capable of out-stressing the bricks. In addition, the compressive strength of the bricks can deteriorate. The regular thickness for bed joints is 10mm.
This is another concern. A substation reduction in brick strength occurs when you don’t properly align the brick wall. It is not difficult to rectify this problem fortunately. All you need to do is install wall starter screw tiles or wavy tail brick tiles. The installation process is simple and can aid you in stopping the damage from misaligned deviation.
Unfilled bed joints
The last mistake we will talk about is one of the worst. Leaving the gaps between the bricks unfilled is actually a common issue. It normally occurs when a team is in a hurry. Workers rush the job and get careless. When they do leave bed joints empty, it can weaken the brickwork by as much as 33%.
