Lesson(s) from an Average - at Best - Tuckpointing Job

Lookin good. As a fellow amateur I found my stone foundation with bigger, more irregular joints to be alot more forgiving than brick work.

Yeah... you know... I was thinking about that. Not sure what to do about it. What I did get - but haven't applied yet - is some sealer to help avoid more damage. Again, my goal is to not have to bother with these things for another 10 years or whatever.

But you're right... it looks a little dumpy. Maybe there's some way I can bleach it a bit before applying the sealer. There's some info on cleaning concrete here I'll maybe try first.
