Problems with Brick Veneer

Learn about problems that develop with brick veneer cladding, even when following the building code. CSE shares photo highlights of brick veneer investigations. The photos provide examples of obvious (and not so obvious) problems with brick veneer construction. The problems include combinations of design errors, shortcomings in the building code,and construction defects.

Learning Objectives

At the conclusion of this session, each attendee will be able to:
  • Correctly interpret prescriptive and performance-based building code requirements and industry standards for brick veneer installation.
  • Discriminately compare as-built brick veneer installation with industry standards and code requirements.
  • Accurately evaluate the adequacy of brick veneer installation to determine the need for corrective repairs.
  • Effectively formulate reasonable details and scope requirements for functional brick veneer installation.
