MASONRY and BRICK ISSUES
The photos below show several conditions affecting masonry and brick: walls that have cracked and separated due to soil movement; facades that have come apart due to improper installation; and surface efflorescence. Additionally, breaches in the waterproof membrane behind masonry may cause water intrusion into the structural wall cavities leading to water damage and dry rot.
