Mortar Analysis & Matching

The importance of using an appropriate mortar for your masonry project canít be emphasized enough! Using the wrong mortar can accelerate damage while using a properly match mortar will preserve your masonry while also matching the existing mortar. Mortar analysis allows us to formulate a new mortar recipe using the same ingredients and exhibiting the same characteristics as the original.

Determining the appropriate recipe is essential. However, there are variances to consider as well. If you are working on a historic restoration, you may want a historically accurate mortar match whereas if you need to repair a brick chimney on a tract home, historically accuracy is less important and a color-matched mortar similar to the original may be sufficient. We have the expertise to recommend the right type of mortar for the job.
