Brick Steps With Rowlock


I don't get to build with brick too often around here in southern California, and almost never with a rowlock. But the existing steps were rowlock so they wanted to match. I had to show my other bricklayer how it's done Been so long I laid out the first running course the wrong way, I did all the rest right and I'm sure no one will notice.

We would be lucky to get 5 years out of those steps in Indiana. Looks like they came out nice.

Re: Brick Steps With Rowlock


I cringe when someone mentions doing them like that. Torture plain and simple.

brickhook - yes, lot of concrete steps. Sometimes stone veneer, if brick usually just the treads laid paver style.

Nice job. I was also going to comment on the short life of brick steps in serious freeze/thaw areas like mine.

Re: Brick Steps With Rowlock


I always think that also, but I did a repair once on 2 sets of steps. Except for the different amounts of damage they were essentially identical, except the one that was LESS damaged (only 1 brick had popped) was more than 30 years older than the more severely damaged one. I know the guy who did the first one, he's gone now but the first guy I ever worked with apprenticed with him. Non nonsense German. No idea about who did the other set but I know it wasn't Manfred. Also not sure why one lasted and the other didn't...workmanship is all I can think of
