An image showing the brick wall just after construction. Its the stage before plastering.

We are thankful to Mr Satyendra K Sharma for bringing following points into notice:-

Picture of the wall shows that the masnory has been done without proper technical supervision.Following defects could be noted.

1. Bricks are laid in English bond, but the vertical joints are not in one line. In fact the header brick should be placed on center line of the stretcher brick, so that all vertical joints are in same vertical line.

2. Width of brick joints are not proper.


3. Joints are not properly packed with mortar, creating honycomb brickwork.
