Could someone advise me on what these red bricks are running along the front of my house wall? They look like vents maybe however i already have air vents at the bottom of the wall if you see the picture. I want to remove the red bricks but not sure if i should or not. All the houses down my street are the same style/design however mine is the only house with these odd red bricks vents. Please advise. Dean
My extension / sunroom builder just extended air bricks - with 2x 48mm UPVC pipework, venting into the... cavity on the side wall, its air brick is about foot away. I am thinking WTF? Thats not even close to notional 1500mm2/mtr as the choke point in the pipework is 48mm pipe applied to each 2 existing bricks... Builder says its OK. Advice appreciated.
My house design has 2 deep, long balconies off the bedrooms on the upper floor. The decks have been designed with parapets; the build is by MBC Timber Frame and it will be a cold roof construction. The architect is doing all the necessary for building regs sign off and it's nearly there, but they are flapping about ventilation of the decks. Their concern is that the cold roof on the decks must be vented, but they don't want to put any vents through the vertical face of the cladding that will be on the outside of the parapet. As yet, I haven't seen the type of vent that they are trying to avoid, but does anyone have any other solutions for venting the roof other than going through the cladding? I've seen a few ideas where the air flow goes to the edge of the deck then up through the inside of the parapet, but I'm not sure if this would give sufficient air flow and achieve the necessary ventilation level. Any suggestions welcome.
