Question by BoardingJD: How do I go about sealing my brick back steps so that the mortar stops eroding?
I have a small brick landing at my back door with five brick stairs leading down into the yard. The brick is about seventy years old and seems to be eroding. Some of the bricks on the ends of the stairs are loosening and the mortar is chipping away in other places. Is there something I can do? I understand sealant could help, is that true? What type? And how is it applied? Thanks!

Go to Home Depot or Lowe’s and ask them about Thompson’s Water Seal. It’s supposed to help prevent water damage on wood, concrete, bricks, etc.
