    Default What are these called

    What is a fancy word for these brick features? Actually the more simple the better. I just don't know what to call them.

    How about "unsupported brick veneer"? Or "hardhat area"? Or "watch for falling brick"?

    I thought of "screw ups", but Bruce covered it better ...

    Maybe "half arched" and pronounce it as "half arsed".

    I was trying to find a nice way to tell them these are going to fall off. Just could not think of what to refer to them as. Guess that is why you have no name for them as they should not be done this way. Shore is purty though.

    Frank,

    I would probably say something like, "Brick veneer must be fully supported. The flared brick veneer details are unsupported and are subject to cracking (as evidenced in the second photo) or failure (i.e., falling off).

    I would say it a bit more accurately and forcefully ...

    ""Brick veneer must be fully supported. The flared brick veneer details are unsupported and ARE cracking AND ARE subject to falling off." Then add that they need to be removed and those areas reconstructed properly.

    They ARE cracking already, not just "subject to" cracking.
