Face brick over existing wood post

551 Views 1 Reply 2 Participants Last post by  chandler48

I have existing 4x4 wood posts supporting a small roof over a porch. I would like to wrap the posts with Kingston sized face brick. Do I need an air gap behind the brick with weep holes at the bottom? Or can I have a thick mortar backing over lath paper behind the brick?

Please see attached image.

I appreciate any help.
