Based on the field survey of Cai's ancient residential buildings, this paper finds that the weathering phenomena such as falling off, crisp powder and fading of brick carving decorative components on the exterior wall are mainly caused by environmental factors and marine climate. Based on the distribution and material characteristics of brick carvings in Cai's ancient residence, combined with the analysis of local climate and environmental factors, the author tries to find ways to reduce weathering damage, reasonably repair and maintain brick carving art.
