Brick Veneer Collapse

Brick Veneer Collapse

Haag Engineering was asked to determine cause of exterior masonry veneer damage, and when that damage occurred.

Haag Engineers inspected an apartment building on two occasions: first to document the existing condition of the brick veneer, and second to document the method of securement of the veneer to the exterior wall as the veneer was removed from the building. The second inspection provided the basis for our opinion that there were an inadequate number of brick ties to support the veneer causing lateral deflection from the wall. We researched the local building code at the time of original construction and confirmed that the veneer was not installed per code. Veneer movement had occurred over time since the building was constructed.
