Question 1     June 05, 2007

Category:  Masonry

Subject:  I want to build brick steps and a landing around concrete

I have a set of concrete steps and landing outside of my front door and it is falling apart, is it possible to build a set of brick steps and a landing around it then just fill in between with conrete to prevent the damaged concrete from falling and pushing out on the brick
thank you

You have two options here:

1.) Demolish the concrete steps which are currently falling apart then use concrete pavers and retaining walls to recreate you steps (ex. BELGARD- Celtik Step Combo)

2.) Hire a qualified mason who will have to tie-back to the existing concrete step, and build a brick veneer using mortar. (This is only if the step is currently in sound condition and still firm)

Good luck with your project,
