Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by MoleGardner Fill up that crumpling grout
Sparrows ate up my mortar in summer when nesting... they need the hard mortar to strengthen their egg shells.
Over 14 years the gaps were so wide with all that pecking in summer months, I could slide my index finger in the gap on the front bricks face of my house. These gaps also caused holes to open up and let the cold draft in during winter causing the floor inside my house behind the door to be real cold. causing energy leakage.
Product was excellent and did a good job filling the gaps and is quite elastic when applied that it can be contoured to fill the gaps. Until next time the sparrows eat the grout again... in another 5 years time to reapply.
Overall good product and worth the price.

Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by Ginotoo79 Looks great - until it rained
I had a flagstone sidewalk with pieces of mortar missing that I wanted to repair and this seemed a convenient way to do the job. I am 79 years old so it took me three weeks to get the job done, but I was very pleased with the outcome. (See the bottom two images.)
Throughout the whole project we had no rain. Returning home from shopping, the first rainy day, we had a disappointing surprise. (See the next two images.)
The mortar repair had changed color to a stark white and also where I had wiped away the excess it could be seen & looked uneven and messy.
After the sidewalk dried the repair looked as in the first images, but went white again with the next rain.
I had repaired the walk myself with the intention of putting the house on the market in the near future. We are stymied now and don't know what to do about this unhappy situation.

i had to put the tube in the oven for 20 minutes to warm up the mortar. Once i did that it came out easier. It didnt match the existing mortar for color. The mortar seemed sticky and was hard to get it to lay down nicely even using a finishing tool. I would use it again for a small area but not larger projects.

I had a crack in a fireplace mortar joint which needed repair. I purchased this because I only had 12" of crack to fill and I didn't want to mix up bag mortar (the bag mortar has aggregate too large for the crack).
The tip has a flat spreading blade on the end. Using a standard caulk gun the product pushes out somewhat hard but that is to be expected since your pushing mortar. The hole on the end is already open. Simply poke the film on the inside of the tube and its ready. My cracks were only about 1/16" wide so I pushed out the material and then used my finger to push the product into the gap. A wet rag was then used to clean up any excess on the existing mortar. The color matched well and it took all of 15 minutes. The product does have a maximum temperature, I believe 450 degrees, so take note.

I purchased a couple of these Quikrete tubes today. It does say below the photo that this is a textured product. But the textured is too rough. This makes it impossible to apply the product well when there need to be only about one eight of an inch to touch up in many places. This seems to be about what if being applied in the photo illustration. Hence this product may be OK to fill a bigger and deeper area, for anything less to be repaired the texture fill is too rough.
The flow from the tube is fine, and the price is low, but costly if it does not do the job. The Quikrete dry repair stuff would be better item for this kind of repair

Acid rain got to my chimney and I saw this at the Depot and thought I would try it as apposed to mixing up a mess.
I have a air tool that dispenses caulk - so I also tried using that. I cut out the loose mortar with a wire brush on a grinder and then cleaned it with acid then rinsed it off and let it dry before starting.
I was able to squirt it down deeply in the cracks and could fill them to match well. Much more expensive but a better result and much easier. 1 Yr ago

The Mortar repair was easy to use and once done I fell in love with my brick wall all over again! I couldn't even tell where I did the repair at, it blended in so well!

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by sbmtka Great for my alternative use
We had a gas fireplace installed and detailed around the fireplace box with Colonial Collection Thin Brick Flats from Home Depot. With little kids and spotty free time to make progress, I wanted to avoid the set-up and mess of mortaring the gaps in our brick. I used this mortar repair to finish the look of the mortar. My gaps were about 1/4" wide and the thin brick is only 3/8" deep, so application was easy. I ran over the seems with a rounded mortar etching tool and the finished product looks great.
