Historic Lime Mortar Restoration

Let’s take a look at our latest job: restoration of the Brattleboro Museum and Art Center. Here we are using traditional historic lime mortar. This type of mortar has no Portland cement in it and is meant to “breathe” moisture. In this video we are removing the pointing mortar with hammer and chisel. The pointing mortar has cement like properties that don’t allow the water to escape the wall and have effectively blown the wall apart because of the moisture rich environment.
