You know, that's a good point. Clearly, I'm way to close to this project to form an objective opinion. Perhaps I'll take your advice and save my battles for the things that DO matter. Thanks for your help.

Call them for pricing, but be sure to be sitting down.

Adding lamp black dye to the mortar will darken it to a dark charcoal grey.

Changing mortar color?


We had an issue on our house and it seems like you might be able to use this solution in your circumstance too. We had two different mortar colors on our chimney and wanted to make them look the same. I found a product called Instant Mortar Match that is intended for that specifically. The company sent us a postcard with all of the color choices, so we could figure out what would work the best. When we received the product, all we had to do was brush it on the mortar joints. It was very simple. Their website is InstantMortarMatch.com. They told us concrete stains should not be used on mortar joints because the acid in concrete stain can damage the mortar by eating at the lime in the mortar.
