I recently inspected a home (western Quebec) that had brick veneer exterior wall finishing, but there were no weep holes.
I made the home buyer and RA (Real Estate Agent) aware of this condition and the potential problems this could mean for the maintenance and the future value of the building.
Of course I recommended further evaluation by a qualified mason or masonry contractor.
I heard from the RA today that it was looked at by a mason, but without getting any real determination of the status.
The vendor has reported that the contractor who did the masonry says that he used ‘solin rigid’ and therefor no weep holes were needed.
‘Solin rigid’ may be a trade name or a product name, but it translates as ‘rigid flashing’.
Is there anyone who knows of this product or practice, and if they do what are the correct installation standards, specifically how is water drained or evacuated from behind the veneer at the wall base and window/door headers?
