Inspecting Brick & Concrete 
What to do with heavily frost damaged brick and concrete ?


Jim inspecting steps


These steps are most likely beyond repair. Years of neglect and severe winters have caused these steps to require replacement. Some of the possible replacement materials may include re-pouring concrete, installing a presure treated or cedar wood step system, or the new plastic deck materials. On-going pointing maintenance is very important on brick and concrete mortar joints. Applying a concrete sealer is always a good idea on older, soft brick.
