    Brick replacement


    A house I'm looking at buying looks like it needs the bricks replacing around the base of the patio door, not sure if it is poor fitting or frost damage, awaiting the results of the building survey. The patio door could probably do with replacing too. Could you take the patio door out and replace a couple of lines of bricks (probably about ten feet across the wall) prior to installing a new door? Would you have to wait for these to cure/mortar to dry prior to fitting a new door?

    "The best way around the problem would be to take the door off and replace the bricks and check the damp proofing course as that seems the real reason why the bricks deteriorated."

    "We would change the brickwork once door is removed. The door could be installed the same day with careful consideration for wet brickwork but can be done."

    "Yes that's possible. Brickwork would only need a couple of days to cure before Installing new doors. Don't forget to install a dpc"

    "You should be able to replace the bricks while the door is still in place"
