I'm not talking about between each individual block. I have a 36x14 glass block sheet that I need to mortar into a rough opening with cement all around. Is this workable? The best solution? Thanks.

Answer: 
Please consult with the manufacturer of the prebuilt glass-block window for mortar specifications. Some Glass Block manufacturers may recommend a Type S mortar – if that is the case, QUIKRETE® Mason Mix No. is a gray Type S mortar. Many people prefer to use a white mortar when placing glass blocks for improved aesthetic appeal, such as QUIKRETE® Glass Block Mortar No. 1610, which is also a Type S mortar. Read More

Answer: 
yes , because it works the best in a grout bag, you can shim the window in place and bag the joint around the edges, If the window is too small buy solid 4 inch block and saw cut them to the right thickness to center the window in its opening. or fill with tight mortar and add after it starts to set.
be creative using some masonry stones or flat rocks to fill areas ,and mortar over them if they don't

Answer: 
Quikrete Type S Mason Mix has a high compressive strength, over 1800 psi, and with high tensile bond strength. So it is suitable for use a small retaining wall. Check to be sure your local code does not have any additional requirements.

Answer: 
If you are in need of a product that can be parged over the surface to help with the structural capacity, then QUIKWALL® Surface Bonding Cement (No. 1230-1231) is recommended. The substrate material must be cementitious based and free of dirt, oils, and other potential bond breakers to allow proper adhesion.

As long as the brick/block is unsealed/uncoated, clean, and free of dust, oil, dirt, or any other bond breaker, the Type S QUIKRETE® Mason Mix (No. 1136) can be used to parge the block/brick.

Rated 3.7 out of 5 by 13 reviewers.
Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by Not the same I've been having problems with quickCrete lately..specifically as it applies to this product as a couple others have mentioned its stick ability/tack point is more brittle than it used to be. For interior applications I have found that cement dust from the joint slowly erodes and causes a mess on the floor July 4, 2016
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by journyman bricklayer for 42 yrs, type S in the green bag or commerical grade goes easily through a grout bag for tuck pointing. Is also the equal to any mixes a bricklayer would use on new construction fireplace or basement. Im a bricklayer for 42 years and I use this brand for smaller jobs where I don't want to bring out the mixer and the sand pile. Can be mixed in a wheel barrel or if you put 3 1/2 inches of water(keep extra water available) in the bottom of a bucket and mix 1- 80 lb bag with a powerful drill. you will have a close mix, continue to add water as need if to tight. when using the grout bag do not make the mix to watery because the richness of this mix will make it flow easily with proper twisting and squeezing. fill areas from the inside out till it sets a bit then cut it off and slick the joint or broom stick the joint for less shine. this will give a neat job with no mortar on the face of the brick...

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Hardly Better Than Sticks and Mud This product has been usable for small block jobs in the past. However Quickcrete has gone cheap and is now using manufactured sand (rock dust from quarry washed stone)like their yellow bag mix. The sand that used to be in this mix was crushed quartz (med..sharp with sugar sand fines) aggravating but usable if you added a shovel of type s mortar to each bag. Buy a 2.5# hammer to beat this stuff down to keep a 3/8 joint. The other pro reviews on this site are suspect(payed reviewers or company employees) as any "Pro" would walk off the job if they were told to use this mix. Head joints fall out because of low tack. You will have to constantly chop the mortar on the board to keep it workable. Do not even attempt to lay brick with this product. I should have known the "New Lower Price" was marketing spin for Inferior Product replacing the one you have been using. December 6, 2015
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by The key is in the mixing... The key to any good mud is in the mixing. You'll want to mix it to the consistency of butter for it to stick properly. You'll need a 5 gallon bucket, 1/2" heavy duty drill, paddle mixer to attach to the drill and water. Fill the 5 gallon bucket about 1/4 full. Open the end of the mason mix bag by cutting it all the way open using a utility knife. Fill the bucket about 1/2 full. Take the drill and start to whip it up. Keep adding mason mix and water until you have the bucket about 2/3 full and you have mixed the mortar for at least 5 minutes and it is starting to look like butter. Have a 3/4"x2'x2' piece of plywood ready on a stand and dump the mortar on it and you are ready to go. You'll need a trowel also. Good luck. September 29, 2015
Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by they changed the mix design Im Mason contractor , I used to use this all the time however the last year i have noticed the mortar no longer sticks the way it used to . when we were at a regular masonry supply yard a rep from this company was there and said the design is lacking lime, so i added a little ..it helped but also the cement content seems a little out to as the strength isnt what it was either , so if you want to work with mortar that doesn't stick to the head joints of blocks ..this will defiantly work ..If you want weak mortar this is the perfect product.. ..and home depot charges more for it now then the brick yards. April 6, 2015
Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by okay Just retired from laying brick the last 45 years. Add some regular masonry cement to the quickcrete and it works fine. July 23, 2015
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Simple Mason Mix Product is just right for laying cinder blocks and building masonry walls. No sand is needed, just add water and start working. June 16, 2015
Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by It's easier this way... This product is ok if you're a home owner that's doing a small bit of tuck pointing, brick replacement, or facing off some superficial concrete damage (without concern for color matching) If you're doing anything larger than a small section though, I can't say this is the way to go. I've found the portland to sand ratio is not always quite the same from top to bottom and bag to bag. Thus you can't rely on this product for more than a small fix. Inconsistently mixed mortars will break down faster and need repair sooner. Worse still, greater issues can develop behind the application and show no signs until it gives out. If you're a home owner and the job needs more than one bag, hire a mason or google search how to mix up your own and buy the sand/gravel separately from a brick supplier. Home Depot keeps a list of contractors in each stores area, I believe I'm on a few of those lists. If you're a contractor, you should only use this if: The job is small doesn't factor weather as a concern doesn't need noticeable aggregate texture doesn't need color matching. Otherwise I always advise making your own mortar. Especially due to the aggregate texture! I always think about how classy that looks, the little pieces of pebbles in old mortar. You'll never get that out of this product. The aggregate is so fine that is is visually indiscernible. Also, if you need more than 4 bags, it is not in any way cheaper to buy this product over mixing your own. You should get the equivalent of approximately 7 bags of this mortar, making from scratch, for the cost of 4 bags of premixed. That's about 30% less. June 22, 2015
