We bought a brand new home which is being built as I write. The front

of our house is about 1/2 brick and the rest is siding.

Long story short -- they put the completely wrong color brick on the

front, which I noticed after I swung by a few days later (the job was

already done). Now they are going to tear down the brick and put the

correct one up.

My question is this -- how do I make sure that they tear it down

carefully, prep the surface correctly again and put the new brick up

correctly? I don't know what to look for or what to ask the job

foreman about in order to make sure we don't have any brick detaching

or water damage in the future. Do they have to rip off the old

flashing? Will there be possible damage to the house wrap (the house

is wrapped all around). Can they accidentally punch holes through the

plywood? I don't even know what else could go wrong or what to watch

out for.

Thanks for any replies!!!
