On the BBC today...
Most houses these days are built with.
See, even the word Euro is causing problems for GB.
Not the first incident, has happen many times over the years with new builds.
Yes it wasn't a surprise to me, although the fact they can't even get the mortar mix right now was. Unfortunately I can't see anything changing.
When I started reading the article this morning, I thought it was going to suggest the weaker mix was maybe 7 or 8 to 1 but was amazed to see that it was tested at nearly 3 times the 5.5 recommendation so maybe 15 or 16 to 1 ...
at least they've got concrete evidence.
Even though the rule is 2 degrees and rising, theyve probably laid the bricks in sub zero temperatures or on frosty days in order to keep the program on track and meet deadlines, which they're obviously not going to admit liability to as heads would roll, much easier to pass the buck.
More along the lines of Sandy evidence.
now we need john Travolta to come along.
There is mortar this than meets the eye.
Bet that Persimmon fella is bricking it.

Eroding my confidence in them
The most common mortar problem I come across is thermalites with the mix too strong , so is it all about penny pinching or lack of knowledge

One building site in SW England was so bad, the homeowners put signs in the front gardens with their properties problems. The developer was more interested in finishing the rest of the site rather than snagging. Potential purchasers had to pass the placards to see the new houses!
