Durability and moisture resistance of clay brickwork

Clay brickwork is extremely durable. AS 3700 Masonry structures.  provide the prescriptive requirements for bricks, mortar, built-in components and reinforcement to achieve various levels of durability.

Clay brickwork walls resist the penetration of rainwater, including wind-driven rain, although they are not completely waterproof. Some moisture may eventually soak through the mortar joints. For this reason external clay brickwork is generally constructed as either cavity walling (two leaves of brickwork separated by ties) or brick veneer (one leaf of brickwork separated from, but tied to a structural frame). Detailing incorporates damp-proof courses, flashings and weep holes.
