The following information has been copied from the Guide to Inspecting Residential Brick Veneer, Ver. 2, Revised April 2006, © 2006 MASONPRO:The knowledgeable staff at MASONPRO together with technical support from the Masonry Institute of Michigan have assembled this guide as a professional courtesy for the residential construction building industry. Our intention is to provide home builders, masons, inspectors and related industry professionals with details and descriptions of sound building practices that meet and/or exceed local, state and national building codes.
Volunteer members of the Masonry Institute of Michigan have donated their time and expertise to develop and refine the details in these guides. Their input is a valuable contribution to the entire North American residential home building industry. MASONPRO is proud to support our industry and publish this information.
Please feel free to use the drawings in this guide as your own and we encourage you to photocopy and fax them whenever practical. Copies of this guide are also available in English or Spanish at MASONPRO.
