Hello. I am hoping we have pinpointed our problem, but we are getting some seepage and from a hose test it appears to be coming from the original veneer brick on the front of our house and the deteriorating mortar. Approximately the bottom 1/3 of our house in front is this veneer brick, the rest of the house has about 8 year old vinyl siding which was put on before we purchased the house. The siding is in good shape. Does anyone have any suggestions on materials we could use to replace this veneer brick? The veneer brick is original so it is about 20 years old. What I am looking for is ideas for replacement of this veneer brick. Of course I am hoping that water is also not coming in from the siding, but I know by holding a hose to the brick area water comes in. Anyway, is anyone here familiar with this Nova Brick product? Is a mortarless product like that better than just having a new veneer brick put on with mortar again? Does anyone else have any other suggestions or comments on the performance of the various mortarless options? Any help and advice is appreciated!
