Struck Joint.

« Back to Dictionary Index

In masonry, a mortar joint which is formed with a recess at the bottom of the joint; it is the reverse of the weathered joint; this joint is used extensively, but chiefly for interior wall surfaces, since it is inferior for outside joints, because of its lack of weather-resisting qualities; the recess at the bottom allows water from rain or snow to seep into the wall.
