The steps going down into my garage are brick. The pressure-treated wood railings are working loose. They are bolted to the bricks using masonry bolts and anchors, I've tried repairing them, but they are loose again. Is there a product that will hold these bolts in place, or do I need to replace the bricks?

try useing tapcons to hold the p.t. wood to the bricks. tapcons are blue screws come in different sizes. drill pilot hole though the wood and into the brick use a screw gun or a bit in your drill. these screws are strong! two to four in each piece of wood should do it. about 30 cents each. i use them every day good luck

there is a two part epoxy glue that you can use. Remove the bolts/anchors, squirt it into the bolt holes & replace the bolts (with out anchors) before the epoxy sets up. remember to twist the bolts as you go for good spread of the epoxy. let this cure for thirty minuts before you replace the railings.
