Details of Typical Wall Intersection Conditions in masonry construction are a good practice. In some simple projects they may not be required. However, by detailing the conditions, you create a basis for requiring the level of detail that the project should receive.
These details are suggested to specify any special configuration, construction and materials required for the conditions required where gypsum drywall walls or masonry wall intersect with masonry walls. When not properly constructed these joints can deteriorate because of movement.
The critical issues are to keep the walls connected and to finish the joint with sealant, which can tolerate some movement.
- This detail is suggested to specify the configuration, construction and materials required for the conditions required at wall intersections with masonry.
- This detail can eliminate the need for specifications covering these conditions.
- These details are referenced in the floor plans as 'Typical'.
- You may want a specification covering the quality and installation aspects of these materials.
- These details should be placed on the Interior Details sheet, the A-500 series of sheets per the National CAD Standards.
