A.
Pre-wet all brick having initial rate of absorption greater than 30 before laying.
B.
Heat water and sand in cold weather. Do not lay brick in temperature below freezing unless such heating of materials and protection of work is properly provided for.
C.
Lay brickwork true to dimensions, plumb, square, and in bond. All courses shall be level with joints of uniform width and height.
D.
Vertical joints in facing bond work shall be spaced so as to line up plumb and true, and all joints shall be as uniform as the type of brick will allow.
E.
Lay facing brick in full mortar bed with shoved head joints. Completely fill joints with mortar. Do not deep furrow bed joints.
F.
Allow space for caulking of joints at frames.
G.
Bond for facing brick shall be running bond unless otherwise indicated on the Drawings. Match existing bond patterns unless noted otherwise.
H.
Anchor facing brick to metal studs or masonry backup at 16 inches o.c. vertically and 16 inches o.c. horizontally with adjustable anchors and ties.
I.
Joint thickness shall be such as to provide coursing pattern to match existing brickwork. When the joints have become thumbprint hard, all exposed joints shall be tooled with a sled-jointing tool. The jointer shall be larger than the width of the joints so that a complete contact is made along the edges of the units, compressing and sealing the surface of the joint. Joints shall be pointed as the tool proceeds.
J.
Form weep holes in head joints at face brick over shelf angles and lintels and where shown on the Drawings. Rake out bed joint mortar to clean flashing surface. Weep holes shall be filled with preformed mesh type vent at bottom of head joints not more than 24 inches o.c.
K.
Keep air space clean of mortar at all times. Where brick extends below grade, fill brick cavity solid to level of flashing and slope mortar slightly to outside under flashing.
L.
When flashing is to be laid on or against masonry, the surface of the masonry shall be smooth and free from projections that might puncture the flashing material.
M.
Where fresh masonry joins masonry that is partially set or totally set, the exposed surface of the set masonry shall be cleaned and lightly wetted so as to obtain the best possible bond with the new work. All loose brick and mortar shall be removed.
N.
Expansion Joints:
1.
Vertical: Locate where indicated on Drawings. Lay units to form a vertical joint free of mortar and of same width as normal head joint.
2.
Horizontal: Locate under shelf angles and other dissimilar materials abutted by brick. Maintain a clear space at least 1/4-inch thick free of mortar. Inspect with trowel before installing backer rod and sealant.
3.
Sealant. Shall be in accordance with Section 07900.
