I have a customer who has a poured concrete landing with two three steps, leading to his front entrance way. He overlayed the concrete pad with red bricks about 20 years ago. Now the bricks are cracking and spalling, so he wants them removed, and replaced with pavers (to match the driveway and walk way). I expect given the age and weathered condition of the brick, they will most likely break and crumble as we remove them. It appears the mortar still has a significant amount of strength however. What would you suggest be the best way to attack this project? I need to get to the concrete pad and I will need it as smooth as possible. Our plan was to use a pneumantic chisel with a hand chisel and just start there. Not sure though how difficult it will be to seperate the moratar from the concrete pad. And how to (sand) the remaining mortar to get a smooth level surface. Thanks in advance for your ideas and suggestions.
