Shoddy brickwork and motorwork
« on: May 20, 2021, 09:21:11 am »
We have been fighting and fighting for Wainhomes to rectify this terrible brickwork and motorworks for the past 18 months only to be told there is nothing wrong with it from the photos. Is this line acceptable on our property and the inconsistency of mortar colour compared on our wall compared to our house?

From the photo, the mortar colour is consistent but the bricks on your gable wall have not been mixed.
It is possible to have them tinted in to reduce to contrast so it is less noticeable.

It won't "weather down in time"
