I'm not much of a brick or mortar/tuckpointing guy, but need to replace a couple loose bricks on a step and would appreciate some help.
The mortar is a yellow sand type. With damp, cold weather today and tomorrow, (lows of 31), anything special I need to do? Based on some other net surfing, I'm figuring on a 3:1 sand/cement (no lime) mix. Am I on the right track? I've already got the old bricks and mortar chipped out, and some old matching replacements. Thanks much.
Tomorrow we'll have a high of 40, if that helps. After that we head into the 20's.
