Just joined and thank you for this resource as I am getting conflicting advice.
I had to tear out my red brick patio around my pool because I had to replace pool liner and when coping and wood plate underlay were removed, the patio section was higher than new coping. The red brick had cement on the bottoms so most of the bricks were trashed.
Do I need to excavate and install RCA or cement base, or can I just have new brick installed on the sand that is there (after proper pitching of the sand)? I live in Northeast, so there is freezing in winter. I wouldn't mind if there is a little settling and unevenness of bricks, and of course the cost to excavate and install a cement or RCA base would be substantial.
Thanks for your advice.
