Instructions

  1. 1

    Clean both the brick and the brick chip with soap and water. Use a power washer to clean the brick within the structure if it's exceptionally dirty. Allow the brick to dry overnight, as it is porous.

  2. 2

    Run a dry cloth over the exposed brick to remove any dust that may have accumulated overnight.

  3. 3

    Coat both the area where the chip came off and the chip itself with construction adhesive. Use a glue roller to ensure even coating.

  4. 4

    Press the brick chip into its niche in the brick, fitting it into place. Hold it in for at least 30 seconds until a bond forms and the pieces stick. Wipe away any oozing glue with a damp rag.

Tips and warnings

  • Pick a day when the weather is clear to complete your brick repair.
  • Wear gloves to protect your hands from the construction adhesive.
  • If you're gluing the brick indoors, do so in a well-ventilated area.
