I'm a homeowner living in a brick home I bought back in Nov 13. The other day I noticed something that is probably not a problem at all but I thought I'd run it by experts because of my lack of knowledge on the subject. There's one spot by the front door where the bottom brick meets the concrete where the mortar appears to not be filled out the entire length of the brick. I've attached a couple of pictures to illustrate. If it's just a cosmetic thing no problem, I'll leave it as is. I just wanted to know if it is something I should get the contractor back out to fix before my year warranty is up.
Thanks for any help.

Yes, one year on house and 6 or 8 (I'd have to pull out my contract to remember) on the slab. I didn't know if the brickwork was 1 year or if it would fall under the slab warranty.
But thanks for the input on the issue. I won't worry with it unless something else more substantial happens.

Although the missing bit of mortar isn't a problem, when I see rough brickwork on a house it makes me wonder about the quality of the workmanship throughout the property.
What's the construction of the walls. ie solid brick, brick outer timber frame inside etc.,

Yes, rustic I think. Lots of other homes in the subdivision have the same rustic look. Some more than others.
