Hey Guys, newbie here and need help on understanding what is causing the damage to my bricks on or near the foundation of the house. It is only happening on one side of the house and is getting pretty bad. I thought it might be due to water damage as I had a leaking water facet on that side of the house. I have attached a picture so you can see the damage.
What is causing it?
Can I pull those bricks out and just turn them around and re-motar? I think trying to match them will be a problem.
have some of the same on our home,,, usual cause's poor brick - wtr penetrates the brick then freezes,,, poor brick don't have the strength to resist the expansive force of the wtr thereby ' face spalling ',,, adding a good silicone siloxane usually resolves the trouble
' Can I pull those bricks out and just turn them around and re-mortar ? ' sure, why not ? its your house, isn't it ? ? ? not a bad idea, either
