50 years is that a Good or Great amount of time for a set of Brick steps to last???

Here is the 
Saga of the Steps
My front steps were the original from when the house was built around 1953.
We have only patched it a couple of times and it has held up for us... until 2 weeks ago! 


Got a few loose bricks? Huh?
Herschel patched it up so we could at least use it until we had the right guys for the job.

Here is it bashed up and ready to be prepped

Below you can see how they used sand to place the pavers for the top landing.
See how they fill a fabric tube to squirt the mortar into the spaces?
Such a Cool method of filling those spaces!

Jose puts the final touches on the steps (Stoop)
His crew did a Fantastic Job!
If you live in the Long Island area and need Concrete & Brick Work 
call Jose (516)565-3581
J.P Construction

All Done and waiting to set...
NOW a NEW Door on Monday!

So that was finished and below a reminder of it after Herschel patched it so we could use it.
