I have a building that has bricks that are flaking off (very old), and we do not want to have to re brick these sections. Is there a product that can be used to spray or roll over the bad areas to lock the face of the brick in place so no more crumbling happens. If so, can it also be painted over?

As bricks are a baked product, I doubt if there is any sealer which will penetrate deep enough to ensure adhesion of the face.
