Cleaning, Repairing, Repointing Brick w/ Lithomex and Ecologic™ Mortar

A 1790 historic brick home was cleaned, repaired and repointed using Lithomex brick patching material and Ecologic™ Mortar. Ecologic™ Mortar is composed of Natural Hydraulic Lime (NHL), sand and iron oxide pigments. Ecologic™ Mortar contains NO harmful Portland Cement. The use of Portland Cement to repoint historic buildings can cause accelerated degradation, which may include spalling of historic bricks, moisture build up within the walls, damage from salts, and poor water vapor transmission. Water trapped within masonry walls may lead to moisture issues within the building including mold, mildew and interior wall damage as well as increase heating and cooling costs.
You can order Lithomex and Ecologic™ Mortar from our website at LimeWorks.us
