Wet spot on bricks and mortar
Hope anyone can help us. I have attached a few photos regarding our issue. We have wet brick and mortar approx 3 to 4 feet from our cement foundation in our entry door. It does not rain under that section as it is covered. This issue is worst when it rains and during morning dew. We changed our roof, seal all windows, basement has been verified and there are no leaks or dampness. Also, the interior wall in that section is not wet and there is no water pipes of any kind passing through. Weep holes are fine, gutters verified and we checked and filled out any mortar cracks and holes. Verified the attic and no dampness issues. We live in a townhouse row of 6 and all of our neighbors have the same issue. We had a few contractors and they could not find the cause. Please note we have even removed the paver stones at our entry way all summer and no change. These paver stones do not cover the weep holes and no sand joint was added. Hopefully someone out there can help us and guide us what can be done.
