Cracked Mortar Between New Bricks

Posted by Scott Ryden on February 20th, 1998 05:38 PM

My wife and I are watching our beautiful new house
being built. Recently the bricklayers finished up.
Above our five-foot wide box window they layed the
bricks vertically and I assume they used an angle
(The window top is at about 12 feet, so it's
difficult to see up there without a ladder). Above
the vertically-layed single layer, the mortar layer
is cracked the entire width of the window. Could
this be superficial, or is this serious? I have
not yet heard a response from the builder.

Thanks for any insightful comments,
