Bowing Brick Veneer

Postby andymoe01 on Sun Nov 12, 2006 8:00 pm

I have a bowing brick veneer on a 7 unit two story building. I did a google search and came up with a link on this website.

Look at this link and scroll down to the sections called "Problems associated with brick beneer walls" look at the picture in this section. This is whats wrong with my wall. ... ml#bulging

I had an engineer look at it and he seems to think the wall bulg was caused by a slightly tilted foundation wall.

Any body have any experience with this type of thing and suggestions on how to fix it?

There are grading problems by the foundation wall. Engineer said to fix the grading and hopefully that will stop the wall from bulging further. Suggestions?
