Mortar is a mixture of hydrated lime, sand, and cement, and is used to bond building blocks, such as stone and brick. When it comes to repairing cracked and worn mortar (also known as pointing, repointing, or tuckpointing), it is important that you go with a trusted and experienced mason. Matching new mortar with pre-existing mortar can be difficult. This is because mortar tends to change in color due to aging, sun exposure, air pollution, and dirt and pollen. Matching mortar involves testing mortar composition to ensure the new mortar blends seamlessly with the original mortar. This is a highly specialized skill and is best left in the hands of a true professional. Mismatched mortar on an exterior surface can easily become an unattractive focal point and can throw off the entire look of a brick home or building.
