Not What Your Brick Should Look Like!

November 9, 2015

Our evaluators see dozens of homes each week and are amazed at what we find from time to time. From interesting “repair methods” to critters to problems our customer’s were unaware of. A common issue we have been finding has been in exterior brick work.

Here’s a recent photo showing the clear effects of foundation movement on the brick facade of this Austin area home. Along this “hinge” joint, the home is separating left to right–like breaking a candy bar in 2 pieces. This image is looking down from a window sill towards the group. Notice how the gap gets wider as you go up?
