Old brick or stone homes often have problems with their mortar. Early mortars
are quite soft and easily eroded by wind and rain, especially in the salty air
of the seaside. Settlement of the building also often results in cracks through
brick and mortar, and occupiers drill holes in walls for many reasons.
One way to repair mortar is to “re-point” it (re-pack the joints with new
mortar). This is a bit tricky to do, because matching the colour of old mortar
isn’t easy, and you can make quite a mess of the bricks.
The best way to repair mortar is with Selleys No More Gaps Mortar Repair. It
comes in a wide range of colours to match practically any mortar, but best of
all, it’s so easy to apply.
Simply squeeze the Mortar Repair into the mortar line and smooth-off with a wet
finger. The finish matches real mortar because this special No More Gaps has a
gritty consistency just like the sand in real mortar. It can even be sanded and
painted if you need to.
