Expansion jointing is a crucial, yet hidden, part of any brickwork project. It is a small gap in brickwork or paving that allows for any unexpected movement, such as heat-related expansion. They are essential in any large-scale civil project, like bridges and railway tracks.
However, they are also needed at a smaller scale in brickwork projects in the form of joint filler expanding foam and expansion strips. Not only does it help with any movement which is crucial in a new build, but it helps with insulating and waterproofing any external wall.
