I am building some forms for concrete stairs leading to an outdoor porch. The right side of the steps will be open (going up). The left side will be against the side of the house. The side of the house is standard face brick. Is there a preferred method or any suggestions for attaching the riser forms to the brick surface on the house?
If you want that stair to stay there, you will not pour the concrete against the brick. Dis-similar materials will move at different rates and it won't take many weeks and you'll have a mess. You need to form away from the brick.
