Reveals in Masonry Walls

Provided By:

Source: MASONRY CONSTRUCTION MAGAZINE
Publication date: August 1, 2004

Many architects use recessed brick courses to create a reveal in masonry walls. I have heard that reveals increase water penetration into the masonry veneer.

Is this situation typically a problem?

Recessing a brick course to form a reveal in masonry veneer can increase water penetration in that portion of the wall. The reveal typically creates a ledge that can interrupt the flow of water down the face of the wall and increase penetration as a result.

Also, the top of the reveal is often difficult to keep watertight and is particularly difficult to tool. Even after tooling is done properly, there is often more cleaning performed in this area to remove any mortar smears on the top surface of the brick at the ledge. Aggressive cleaning of this area further increases the likelihood of water penetration.

When standard core brick units are used, the edge of the cores are closer to the exterior face of the mortar joint. The deeper the reveal, the more serious the concern. On deep reveals, any etching or weathering of the mortar in this vicinity can expose the brick core to rainwater.

The flat surface at the reveal also tends to collect snow and ice during winter months. This situation further exacerbates the potential deterioration problem.

For all of these reasons, reveals in masonry tend to increase water penetration into the wall and may increase the potential for deterioration.
