Dear All,

Can we construct G+1 load bearing brick wall residential building as exposed brick wall without plastering?

Or do we have to construct as a framed structute?

Kindly guide me.

Thanks,
Ramu.

Plastering is a protective covering apart from providing smooth finish . It improves the structure longevity for load bearing works.

But due to some reasons , u want to avoid Plastering , better take following measures :

Construct G+1 in load bearing , First class brickwork with crushing strength not less than 105 kg/cm2

Brickwork shall be in  Cement : coarse sand mortar  1:4 . ( In normal case  a leaner mortar suffice )

Pointing shall be done properly using 1:2 mortar .

Curing of brickwork must be done  religiously for 10 to 14 days.
