Tuckpointing

[Subject Prev][Subject Next][Thread Prev][Thread Next]
Does anyone have experience re-pointing brickwork done with lime mortar - i.e. a 1920's era townhouse.

What should be used for mortar?  Is any special preparation necessary?  Are there different requirements for exterior versus interior walls?
