I am having a problem figuring out why these bricks are deteriorating. They are located on the bottom two layers on both sides of the garage. This is in Santa Barbara, CA. No freezing involved. No water intrusion. Overhang covers area, roof drains elsewhere.
It almost looks like erosion by a river. As you can see in the 3rd photo, it has taken the whole bottom brick all the way back to the framing. The 1st and 2nd photo show how the 2nd layer has rounded off in the middle of the brick. It is not soft and there is no dust or sediment on the sidewalk around the bricks. Any ideas? ![icon_question.gif](upload://t2zemjDOQRADd4xSC3xOot86t0m.gif)
