Most houses in WA don’t have weep holes or they are covered by pavers and pathways. This wall was mouldy in the living room due to a poorly maintained gutter outside which enabled water to run down the cavity between the brick walls.
With no weep holes to escape, the water sits there causing mould and damp. The mortar was removed where the arrows are so the wall could dry out.
Here’s another couple of very significant major structural defects in a roof void. The steel strutting beam is rolling over and the top plate has pushed off. This one goes straight to the engineer to investigate & sort straight away.
Hi guys, just talking about weep holes today. A weep hole is a brick joint that doesn’t have mortar in it. It’s designed to allow any moisture that might get into the cavity, inside the wall, to escape when there’s excess water and also allows air flow in the cavity.
