Hi,

We have an concrete patio out back that looks pretty plain. I was thinking of covering it with brick, as I already have a stable foundation. Is there some sort of adhesive that would bond the brick to the concrete patio? I'm guessing then I could just then grout the gaps, or use concrete? The only thing close I've done to this before is to put ceramic tile in a kitchen.

Also, the patio does a pretty good job of shedding water but I would like add a little bit more of a slope to it, any ideas? Thanks for any and all help.

You want brick paers set in mortar, with a bonding agent

Thanks for the reply. What are (brick paers)? Pavers maybe? I've been looking alot online at salvage brick. It seems the brick pavers sold in town are all some sort of concrete. I'm thinking of using something really old like the dark red, baked bricks, something that will last. I helped put in a concrete paver sidewalk a few years back and it's already chipping pretty bad. Maybe it's the rock salt or the kansas winters. Thanks again,

Brandon

I guess my V key was stuck. Pavers is what I meant.

If you are looking at concrete products they are concrete cobbles or lanscaping products. They are not pavers unless they are fired brick, which is hard enough to withstand the elements. any masonry supplier can get two or three kinds for you.
