10:00 - 11:00 a.m: Basics of Brickwork Detailing- 1 LU/HSW AIA Credit

Leroy Danforth, Design Services Manager - Glen-Gery Corporation

Water penetration is responsible for many of the problems encountered in masonry walls

today. The successful performance of a masonry wall depends on limiting the amount of water penetration and controlling any water that does enter the wall system. The concept behind the ‘brick veneer drainage wall’ is discussed in detail, as well as, the proper materials to specify in order to maximize a wall's water penetration resistance. The various elements and materials which make up a building are in a constant state of motion. All building materials expand and contract due to changes in temperature; some materials move with changes in moisture content. These major causes of movement: thermal, moisture, deflection and creep, along with the proper way to control these movements are the focus of this presentation.
