Short form question: Replacing bricks of a brick stair-case (leading to house), what kind of concrete to use?
Full story: The staircase leading to my house (from outside) had some broken bricks. The biggest issue was the rail - as the bricks to which it is fitted came loose, the rail was no longer stable. Since than, I used chizzle+hammer to remove the broken bricks and concrete that was holding them. Most of the staircase is intact - but about 20 bricks from various sections of the stair-case were removed.
My next step, I think, is to buy some new bricks and concrete. Home-Depot or Lowes are the two stores I normally would get these in.
My question is: What kind of concrete should I get? There seem to be different types, my prime concern is that it holds well. A long time ago I replaced one brick in same stairs, and this time I took it out, as the concrete didn't seem to hold. (It is very possible I messed up installation)
I'd like to do this myself due to budgeting issues, and I do not have any tools that a construction person might have.
