OK I have Zero knowledge concerning brick siding. I own a 6 year old brick faced home. I noticed that a number of the red bricks were cracked and then I noticed that the builder did not use solid bricks. Basic red clay bricks. I'm questioning if this even meets code? Sadly I'm the 2nd owner and even hiring an out of town inspector did not find any issues (Yeah some were major and this guy came highly recomended and was a retired builder himself).
Please tell me if these bricks conform with code as it seems ridiculous that only 6 years and significant cracks. Plus could this be related to my water issues around the home?
Last and unrelated. Anyone know of a site for fireplace mantle and surround ideas?
