02 Aug Brick masonry construction
The correct execution of a brick masonry wall will provide the perfect base for any type of subsequent work performed thereupon, thereby avoiding future pathologies both in the wall and in the coverings that it will bear.
Establishing a stable and well-executed substrate will ensure greater construction stability.
It will also ensure greater covering yield, thereby reducing the possibility of pathologies arising from the necessary variation in thickness to correct planimetry defects.
Any brick masonry construction must be executed systematically, thereby avoiding errors that could affect the entire construction.
- Two optical sights will be disposed to mark the difference in length of the rows of bricks that we will lay until the wall is completed.
- Likewise, a string will be tied between the two optical sights in order to mark the height level of each course.
This string must be perfectly leveled and plumbed with respect to the vertical in order to avoid planimetry defects in its execution.
- Spread the mortar paste and immediately lay the courses up to the height of the previously leveled string.
In order to ensure correct stabilization, the successive courses must be staggered.
- As each course is laid, it is advisable to remove the excess paste droppings.
- If the wall is going to be exposed, the joints will be smoothed using a masonry trowel to ensure that the result is as aesthetic and uniform as possible.
