Re: Gap between Window frame and brickwork2

ShirleyMei, do you have any pictures of how big the gap is? I think there might need to be a gap for expansion. I know in our last rental the window pane in the bedroom cracked from one side to the other and I blamed my son for hitting it with a football but the glazier said the builder had not left any expansion room for the window frame.

It could well be an articulation joint. This allows both expansion and some flexing of the slab.
Where articulation joints are next to a door or window a gap of 10 mm must be left between the edge of the frame and the brickwork.
