Where Can I Purchase Pre-made Lime Putty Mortar Or What Do I Need To Make It?


Can I get it from Loews or Home Depot?

Is there an additive that I can add to Portland Mortar to make it Lime Putty Mortar?

I need to re-point my foundation which is field stone and brick, and built in 1910. I live in Central Massachusetts.

Help, please!

Thanks!

No, pure lime mortar only contains lime and aggregate, or something like brick dust can be added to make the mix slightly hydraulic.
