Good Practice Guide: MASONRY VENEER
Masonry veneer is a very popular cladding for New Zealand homes, and currently has about 50% of the New Zealand market. It is solid and hard-wearing.
Masonry veneer's popularity as a building material is also based on the use of 'natural' materials, its proven weathertight performance and the low ongoing maintenance required.
This describes masonry veneer claddings on residential buildings that come under the scope of NZS 3604 and NZS 4229.
The basics of masonry veneer design and construction are discussed, along with the specific requirements for the masonry, wall ties, structural frame, foundations and cavity. The importance of the cavity is highlighted as a mechanism for providing weathertightness and structural separation. Wall maintenance, masonry cleaning methods and alternative masonry finishes are also covered.
To help those designing Alternative Solutions for masonry veneer, this Good Practice Guide introduces some of the principles to be followed in specific design.
This Good Practice Guide: Masonry Veneer is an essential reference tool for architects, designers, masons, builders and related trades, building consent authorities (BCAs), tertiary tutors, students and apprentices.
