clay brick

:eek:what to do? bricks are losing their stuff! my 45 y/o house in south texas has some of the exterior bricks disintegrating! they seem to be losing their shape and shrinking; the mortar is still fine. some of these disappearing bricks are on my window sills! pretty soon i'll be looking under them into the house? these bricks seem to be a bad mix, as if there is too much clay in them!is that likely? what can i do to preserve the whole mess? would it help if i just paint all the brick? it would be a huge thing to go around the house and just pull out all the bad ones and replace...please help, this is really getting to me!
