Question Repairing Steps of Interlocking Brick

Hello There,

Our front entrance has 2 steps of interlocking brick. The problem is that the bricks are loose and a danger to walk on. How do I get the bricks to stay in place again ? Your help would be greatly appreciated. Thanks.

I was talking to a company that manufactures concrete pavers (Borgert) regarding a paving project at my house in which I want to cover the existing concrete steps with pavers. He said they have a special adhesive for attaching the pavers to the concrete. He claimed that the adhesive is strong enough that if I tried to pry the pavers off the concrete, the concrete will spall off before the adhesive will fail.

You might try calling a supplier that carries the type of pavers you have and ask for their advice; they may have an adhesive that will work.

If you could post a photograph of which interlocking bricks these are, we might be able to come up with some solutions. Post a photograph to a web site and link to it from your post here.

It appears that the 'foundation' or base has shifted. I suspect that rebuilding them from the underlying sand base will solve the problem.
