Customer Questions & Answers

Reopointing 250 year old brick inside

Where can I purchase a mortar which isn't harder than the brick? What brand can I purchase?
Asked by: Vardongrip
For the most part anything over 100 years old IS NOT PORTLAND. Do not use anything that "sets up" or "hardens". The only mortar, and still the best, was Lime Mortar, easily mixed as 1:2:3 Lime, sand, and water. Although the original masons used lime slaked for months or even years, hydrated lime such as this will create the correct orignal mortar. Lime mortar is softer than brick or stone, generally does not crack, can breathe moisture properly, and be repointed without any problems perhaps every 50-100 years. The only question is trying to find local sand and thereby matching the color and type, but generally no one is this exacting. you can often identify lime mortar by the age, ability to be scored by a trowel or knife, or the far thinner joint. It is categorically NOT weaker than portland, as in fieldstone or cobble construction 1/3 or more of the wall is exclusively mortar. Lime mortar is slower to dry and can be left in the wheelbarrow for quite some time as it takes a week to set up fully. This makes it exceptionally forgiving and ideal for amateurs, not ruining wheelbarrows and trowels. The only other caveat is although lime will set up punky in an hour or two, lime mortar MUST be cured slowly and kept damp but not wet for a week or more. If not, it will simply crumble into fertilizer, or inert lime additive for the next batch. It can be adjusted to make an ecological, breathable, sterile, interior lime plaster as well. Recommend, and recommend Minuteman brand, but be warned it can eventually absorb moisture in the bag and become inert without visibly changing. If it must be stored, slake it in water as putty for months or years as your ancestors did.

Asked by: Dan
Thanks for your question. Given the age of the home, this product would not be recommended for that type of application.
