TOPIC: weep holes stone veneer

weep holes stone veneer 12 years 8 months ago #10520

Hi Guys
I did an Inspection on a townhome this morning. It had stone on the garage door jambs instead of siding. That was the only two spots that were covered in stone. There were no weep holes. Stone was set on a steel angle bar like some applications of brick veneer.The stone was not set on the foundation. No eveidence of moisture on the inside of the garage. Does this application need weepholes ? House is 5 years old. I also posted at your leaking house. here are some pics

I don't believe weep holes are an issue for the installation you are talking about.  The look like a cultured stone veneer type application.  Check out this diagram, www.qualitystoneveneer.com/Pub/UserMedia...ner_Installation.pdf , it should give you a decent idea of i typical installation technique. Was the top of the wall at mid level or did it rise to the soffit area? If mid area, was it flashed?

It is probably flashed at the top.  That link I included in my earlier post has some good info on the general installation of that kind of material.  It has been on there for 5 years and there is no evidence of moisture intrusion in the garage, I wouldn't worry about it.  In short, weep holes aren't required;) There is a small "buffer" zone(usually vapor barrier) between the stone veneer and stud wall/sheathing.
