EFFLORESCENCE ON MASONRY SURFACES
Efflorescence commonly occurs on masonry and of itself is normal and not warranted. Concentrations of efflorescence that persist over time may indicate an underlying concern that may have warranty coverage.
One-Year-Work and Materials
If it is determined that a defect in work or material is the cause of the efflorescence, repairs to the defect shall be made.
Efflorescence is the formation of a white crystalline deposit on the surface of concrete and masonry when moisture evaporates from the surface. It is an indication that moisture is moving through the material to the surface.
