Re: Brick ties

[Subject Prev][Subject Next][Thread Prev][Thread Next]
Gordon,

Don't remember "50 to 60" specifically; but I had "an almost"project more like 90 years old. The "brick ties" were 3.5" or 4" long nails driven into the wall studs. Over the 90 or so Canadian winters the differential temperature movements has worked many of the nails loose. As a result of this the brick veneer was very "wavy and in imminent danger of complete structural failure. The building was sold "as is" and the new owner removed and reinstalled (using the same brick) the exterior brick veneer.

Based on the above, I expect almost anything is possible. You may have to do some selective demolition to find out what was actually used on your project.

       Good luck.

Regards,

H. Daryl Richardson

Does anyone know how brick facades were typically anchored 50-60 years
ago? Ribbed brick ties back then?

thanks,
