Large area of brickwork not drying

Postby bylromarha » Wed Mar 02, 2011 10:56 pm

My new build house is 5 years old and after the rain last week we have a patch of external brickwork about 2m square that is still looking dark.

I can't confirm if it's wet to the touch as it's a 3 storey house and the patch is between floors 2 and 3. However, I'm concerned its still a different colour to the bricks around it.

Any pointers as to what it could be? Price to fix or work done under NSBC warranty?

Who do I need to call to take a look? A surveyor, a bricky, a builder, I have no clue as never been in this position before.

there could be mortar stuck on the ties in that patch of brickwork and it is leaving damp spots or a tray could be filled with mortar, however these should be checked on an inspection perhaps it could of been missed.
