Can someone help?
I live in the Chicago land area. Own a brick cape cod home built around the 1930's and now I need to do some minor tuckpointing on the exterior mortar. I tried using a bag of mortar mix from HD but the color wasn't even close to the existing mortar. Looking at the existing mortar it seems to have a lot of sand in it and is cream/light brown in color, kinda like old concrete. Can anyone tell me what I need to be mixing to match the color of the existing mortar? Thanks in advance.
