If it is a kitchen counter, the receptacles must be placed so that no portion of the countertop is farther then 24" from a receptacle (commonly called the 2'/4' rule)e44c4ee73993d838e214c3842b931fe2.jpg download (2).jpg

Answers for the questions below are all from a Test from AECDailey;

T/F False

3. Which of the following is NOT a technique for mitigating the impact of mortar bridging and mortar snots. ?

a. Ensuring a 2" cavity between wythes.
b. Specifying that the mason wait until the mortar is almost dry before placing the next layer of brick.
c. Specifying the mason slope the back side of the mortar bed.
d. Install an open weave mesh designed to catch droppings while allowing the passage of water.

4. Movement capability is an important performance consideration in the choice of through-wall flashing because;

a. The Architect may change his or her mind about the design.
b. it makes renovations easier.
c. flashing must be able to accommodate different thermal and structural movement.
d. flashing should never be able to move.

5. Through-wall flashing installation is typically done by these two contractors;

a. Mason and sealant contractor
b. mason and general contractor
c. sealant contractor and roofer
d. Mason and framer

6. One of the biggest advantages of flexible flashing is

a. it is light and can easily be carried around a job site.
b. it can be folded and curved to work at tricky intersections and wall openings where the same intersections with metal flashing would require soldering.
c. it’s inexpensive.
d. it can be used as an additional insulating layer.

Marcel,

Thanks for taking the time with the questions. I always enjoy researching and learning something new, and learning that there is more than one way to skin a cat!

I think that the hardest part is that you have to find questions that don't have the answers readily found on Google.

Thanks again - and you said it would be an easy week.

Tim
