Options to repair spalling bricks
I bought a house that had 2 Walls out of 4 with grade above brick Line. i also had a patio with pavers that was sealed with tar, no membrane. the sills in the back of the patio are also partially rotten. 3 rows of brick are now dammaged all around.
got a whooping estimate to repalce the bricks all around, including behind the patio. high cost was justified by usage of many anchors to hold the bricks above...
could i just parge over the bottom rows or pour reinforced concrete over? (i would keep the weep hole open somehow).
ps: i took care last year to drop the ground level last year to clear the top 3-4 inches of foundation.
thanks for your advices,
