Brick Building

[Subject Prev][Subject Next][Thread Prev][Thread Next]
Good Thursday,
What are some options for an unreinforced brick building that has the outer walls settling causing sawtooth cracks to open at the brick joints?  It seems expansive soils may be playing a part in the settlement.  The roof diaphragm has decent retro ties from the walls.  The walls are only slightly out of level and warped.  The morter seems to have been replaced in many (if not all) areas.  Thanks for your input.
