Masons and building product suppliers have been adapting to evolving codes for years. Many have developed simple solutions to ensure quality in masonry homes and ease the inspection process. Here are a few examples.

Precast concrete lintels

Precast lintels provide strength and wind resistance, especially over window and door openings. Their “U” shape design supports predetermined gravity load capacities and helps expedite concrete masonry construction. They form a composite beam system that has added load carrying capacities when filled with concrete grout.

Masonry adhesive

Mason Bond is an adhesive used for concrete blocks, bricks, and decorative stone. It comes pre-mixed and ready to apply in caulk-size tubes or larger application equipment. The product recently gained compliance verification from the International Code Commission.

Inspection inserts

These inserts, invented by a mason contractor, make the completion and inspection of concrete block walls less painful. The metal panels are inserted into block inspection holes, replacing plywood covers. Holes in the panel's design show when block cells are filled with concrete.

Truss anchors

Hip roofs are becoming more common in new Florida homes than gabled roofs, and embedded truss anchors are being used to provide additional lateral wind resistance. This engineered method properly attaches roof trusses to concrete and masonry walls. The products are designed with staggered nail patterns for greater uplift resistance.
