The basics of lime mortar repointing. This is the first of a few videos I have done on the repointing of a portion of my own building. The other videos will follow as soon as I have a rainy day and no interior work to do. Lime mortar restoration is critical to the future of our architectural past and like so many aspects of traditional building... it is not that complicated. However, it is a LOT of work and slow going and very few masons are using lime mortar without portland cement. I hope this video will help you understand the process and help keep our historic building for generations to come.
