Rated 2 out of 5 by from Not suitable for brick repointing Bought this product because of its description of being suitable for brick repointing but it didn't work as I expected. I wanted to fill in the joints of my 60 year old brick house but the project was a failure. The mass didn't flow well from the grout bag and the mortar didn't stick well to the bricks. Only after mixing half of the mortar with half of Portland cement I was able to use this product. While this product may be good for laying bricks, I would not recommend using it for brick repointing or any touch up applications. I was also surprised how incompetent the HD employees are. When this mortar didn't work for me I contacted HD again and both online customer support and the employees at the store were trying to sell me the mortar that was for thick bed mortar applications even though I described in great detail my project. Always talk to specialists and do your own research before placing the orders as you can't rely on the HD's recommendations.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from I used the Type S to lay blocks and bricks and then applied it as a stucco coating over the entire project. Mix as directed and apply. I am not a masonry person by trade, but this stuff makes my work look like I do it for a living.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Really sandy mix I've done some brick work before. I'm no professional by any means, but I'm told I do some good work. I tried this brand since I had a HD gift card. Normally I go with Quikrete from that L store, but I thought I'd give this stuff a try. For the life of me, I couldn't get a good consistency on this stuff. I think it had too much coarse sand because it was more like grits than pudding. It was stiff and hard to work with and I couldn't get that nice pudding-like consistency. No matter what, it was just too grainy and didn't want to stick to the brick when I was buttering. That said, I got a couple courses of brick layed and everything is well adhered now that it's dry. I think I'll stick with the other guys or my own mix, just due to workability. Whether it was an off batch or not, I wasn't very impressed.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great material to work with I layed over 1000 block using this mortar mix at a remote location. great material to work with and good value. You can't go wrong here.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Couldn't get this to stick to anything I was using this to repair a few blocks in the foundation. No matter how I mixed it, I couldn't get it to stick to anything. It was like working with wet sand. I also tried to use it as stucco for the same wall and it would peel right back off. Going back to the other brand from the blue store.
