The brick wall in the front of my townhouse does not seem to drain properly: it seems that when water seeps in, it does not flow out well. Last winter, one brick at the bottom split; I was told this is probably because that brick had water in it (it was porous) and when the water froze, the brick "popped". Someone once told me the wall "is not pointing right", which I assume means it has the wrong slope for the water to flow away from the wall.
The wall is about 10 feet wide, and two stories high (about 20 feet). I would say that the first seven rows from the bottom seem affected (and may have to be redone), but not on the full width (maybe half). There are also some deterioration and cracks in the masonry between the bricks toward the bottom of the wall, plus one crack that goes fairly high (this may be one entry point for water behind the wall). I expect some brickwork would be needed, and some remedial work in the shape of the wall to make sure water flows away.
To know for sure what needs to be done, a person would have to take a look at this wall, so this would have to be arranged.
