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
I will keep this simple as possible : For older ,softer masonry units " brick and stone " from early century era here is the mortar mix recipe . " one part portland cement, two parts hydrated type s lime , nine parts clean washed sand" which is a type "o" historic soft low compression strength mix ".. dry mix very very thoroughly, only use clean water " as in well water " . municipal tap water is loaded with salts and chlorine that will only harm the mortar . Once mixed to desired consistency , pile it up and let sit for approx 15-20 minutes to let it hydrate , remix again before using . mix only enough that will be used within a 2-3 hour time period. try to keep your work area shaded out of direct sun . keep work area slightly dampened with use of a spray bottle , let joints harden to touch after placement before " tooling " , easy tooling for joint finishing is carving out excess mortar with use of a wooden dowel rod , this method works great for brick and stone mortar joints but joints must be hard to touch when doing this so it doesn't smear or make a mess etc . Air temps are a big factor and drying rates will vary . Do small areas at a time during the process . If working outside cover your work at the end of each day. Do not perform any work when temps are below 40 degrees or it will fail . You actually want an environment above freezing air temps when using mortar period . wear gloves due to cement being caustic . Take your time and enjoy it .

Can I use this to make my own primer for my new sheetrock wall?

Can I use this to make my own primer for my new sheetrock wall?
Asked by: Painter
Thanks for your question. It cannot be used for that type of application. Lime is typically used as an additive for mortars, field markers, etc.
