Our house was built in 1910. We have a brick wall that surrounds the oven area. The top section of the wall still appears intact, however the lower part of the wall is crumbling. See attached photos. Could I please have advice how I may go about fixing the lower part of the wall?
Thank you so much for your advice!
Unfortunately, the brick, mortar & work quality dating back a century ago was poor unlike today,
Ironically the plaster that has been removed , supposedly a design feature today, masked
Substandard masonry that doesnt meet todays Australian Standards (AS3700),
The cheaper option is to repair and replace the necessary bricks, re-plaster and Wallpaper.hth
