    Default Whole lotta weepin goin on!

    Proof that anything can be fixed if enough $ is thrown at it, this 12 storey building was getting weep holes after 30 years with none.
    Two rows of bricks were being broken out and temporary jacks put in. New flashing was tucked in behind the jacks.
    Now the walls and the tenants can all weep together.

    They installed weep holes at the base of every floor, so yes the lintels now have weeps, I think.

    Thanks, Jerry. I inspected one of the units for a client. Stuck my camera out the window.
