Anyone have experience with this? Wonder if they really work or not. Have had a little bit of spalling and a contractor suggested this.

Thanks!

I have no experience but when searching see there is a Brick Institute of America and they have very specific reasons when such a thing can be used and when it is a waste of money. You have to know why you are having the problem with your brick.

When I went to the Brick Institute I could find to referral to this so I do not know,how valid this link is.
