You should be ashamed of yourself! This was no "How to replace" article. Who was responsible for this?

I agree. Where are the strps and the project itself?

I'm a little surprised by this "step by step" article about replacing these bricks.. It doesn't say anything about replacing bricks. I mean, it almost came off as a joke. The first few lines in the "step by step" article says... well, this wall is too far gone to replace any of the bricks... and thats it!! Wow! This article should have never been published... at least not under the title of replacing the bricks. I've read other articles you have posted that are great... but this one really amazed me.

Let's see. The title of your web page is "How to Replace Spalling Bricks" But you don't explain how to replace spalling bricks. This is the similar to other pages on you website. It's starting to look as though you people are either dishonest or you just don't care what it is that you say, as long as it gets traffic to your website.

Now, some dishonest website owners will just hire someone off the street to write content. (Think AOL). The author may know absolutely nothing about the topic about which they are writing, but simply pulling erroneous or incomplete information from other sources. So deciding to visit a website is one thing, but deciding to ever come back really depends on how honest and careful you, the website owner are.

Since you, the website owner, are dishonest or extremely careless about the content of your articles, I really have no reason to trust anything you put on your website and no reason to return to your website.

This article uses a brick wall as its example. My house (about 40 yrs old)is situated 200' from the beach facing west. This house was built of brick, which, I guess, was never sealed. The bottom rows are (have) turning to red dust; the mortar to grey dust.
There is no other texture between the bricks and the interior of the casa.
How can I safely replace these bricks without the house falling down? (just kidding).
I intend to stucco over the finished product.
Thanks for your input.

Learned something new. I hope to keep my brick ranch house looking good for many years to come.
