Masonry Parapet Walls

[Subject Prev][Subject Next][Thread Prev][Thread Next]
Working on a project where the block & brick parpet wall is bulging at a line approx. where the timber joists bear. Wall is about 3 feet exposed to south, north facing, over 50 years old, old stone coping which leaked (has been repaired).  Generally all the criteria to have a troubled parapet wall and it is troubled. What is the fix for this wall? Remove and rebuild brick and block parapet? Any suggestions for remedy in the "fixed" wall.
