Is there a detail for a best practice to install a window into a structural brick home?
I’m renovating a structural brick home with 3 and 4 wythe exterior walls, and I’m not thrilled with any of the details my subs are pitching and I’m less thrilled with my own as I keep finding more and more flaws the more I think about them.
I’m almost sure that constructing a treated lumber buck is a reasonable step, but should I be treating or coating the brick before the buck? After the buck? No treatment at all? What’s the rain screen? In any case, I’d be very appreciative of your help. Thanks, all.
