What is the best method of repairing my brick patio?

Some of the bricks have crumbled and need to be removed and replaced with new bricks. After that is done then I plan to seal it to help keep the moisture out.

    If they are still level and haven't shifted or any thing, you should be able to lift them up and put down a new one.

    It's possible some of the moisture might be coming from underneath the brick. Do you know if there was a moisture barrier installed? If not, the fix you have in mind will work, but you might have it happen again. I'm sure you don't want to rip up your entire patio and start over so I'd do exactly what you posted and hope for the best. There may be a brick installer who knows more than I do about this and if so you should probably take their advice, but from where I stand having to do this occasionally is a lot better then taking the time and money to rip it up if you're not sure. A more experienced hometalker might have some other ideas. If so, I hope they post them.

    Good luck with your project. While you're doing it take pictures so that you can post it under "Post Project" so that we can see how it all turned out.

    I wish you the best of luck with your project!
