[The exterior walls of my house, above grade, are faced with bricks and mortar.] I had bad mortar and it appeared the water was very slowly pouring out . I started re-pointing the bricks in this location. As a result there seams to be a line where the face of the bricks fell off (some were covered with salt. Also below this line the bricks darkened. I also parged the foundation and it looks like I have wet spots. I did this work about three months ago. Any ideas on what is happening?
