Description

Article on weatherboards above brick veneer.

For all its solid appearance, masonry veneer is not a waterproof cladding. Masonry veneers are absorbent, and water can migrate through to the cavity – hence masonry veneers are known as wet cavity systems.

House designs with brick veneer cladding at the bottom and weatherboards above present a design challenge. Here we have some details that allow ventilation and drainage from the upper cladding while preventing additional moisture entering from the brick cavity and maintaining ventilation of the veneer cavity.
