Replacing Blown Bricks and How Many can Safely be Removed at a Time?

Postby iainwilko » Tue Mar 29, 2016 10:40 am

Hi all,
I need to replace quite a number of bricks that have blown (started crumbling) and have salt deposits on them.
Want to get this done before i put in a chemical damp proof course, i just wanted to see if anyone has suggestions on how many is safe to take out at any one time. There is a section of around 10 bricks over three courses in the worst affected area.

Many thanks
