Answer: 
You can, however, you will be using the wrong mortar to match your building and aren't conserving the brick. Your brick home was likely laid with a lime putty or hot lime mix and the joints are 1/4" jointing which is also known as a butter joint. Using Portland cement will also trap salts inside itself and deteriorate your mortar. Your joints must always be softer than the materials around it. Even an Read More

Answer: 
Thank you for your inquiry. We recommend using a historic material on anything in excess of 100 years old. We'd recommend using a Type O or Type K mortar for your project. Please see a Home Depot associate on availability of this type of mortar nearest you.

Can you recommend an interior whitewash mix recipe?

I am patching stone basement walls in a 100yr old home that seemed to have been whitewashed in the past. I am looking for a recommendation for a whitewash mix. I am leaning toward a simple limewash mix and am unclear about what product / proportions to use as well as the pros/cons of any additives. My local Home Depot has Graymont Super Limoid Type S for Mortar, but I'm not sure if that would be appropriate for this application. I have been patching the walls with mortar mix (2:1 sand:cement, cement is 1/2 Portland, 1/2 type S mortar mix)

This will create a whitewash paste. 3) Paint the whitewash onto the concrete with a Read More
