Weep Holes Found in Brick Veneer

Weep holes are gaps in bricks in the mortar joints and can occur every foot and a half to three feet along the wall of the home typically close to the foundation.  The purpose of weep holes is to allow wind-driven rain or moisture that gets into the walls to escape back out.  Secondly it also equalizes the pressure between your brick veneer wall on the outside and your studded walls on the inside.  Sometimes you ail see these with a metal flashing running along the top of the foundation and also sometimes with wicks sticking outside of the weep holes.  These wicks are designed to help draw out the moisture from inside the walls as well.
