Water Infiltration: Brick absorbs water. Water then soaks through to the back side of the brick and mortar. When properly installed with approximately 1” open space between the sheathing and brick veneer and with weep holes at the bottom, a drainage plane is created and no special drainage is needed.
Water Management Solution: A building wrap with water resistance keeps water from penetrating the wall.
MAX Building Wrap is one of the top products to use in brick applications because it provides the best air barrier and outstanding water holdout.
