Checklist For Brickwork


A brickwork inspection checklist can help ensure that bricklaying and masonry work is being done according to building codes. Conduct an incoming goods inspection to ensure bricks are of the quantity, color, and quality specified upon order. Check the bricks for imperfections such as scoring and Harding and that they are vertically or horizontally aligned. Give this template to contractors and bricklayers to use as they go and again for a final inspection.
