Custom Mortar Blending and Material Matching

CUSTOM BLENDING AND MATERIAL MATCHING

When it comes to replicating historic masonry materials such as original mortars, stuccos, and terracotta glazes, we offer unmatched commitment to accuracy and attention to detail, so you can be assured that we will produce the best possible restoration materials for your project.

 

We take the findings of material tests to produce custom historic restoration mortar and stucco to match the original in both performance and appearance. We’ve run ASTM C-1324 tests on our entire range of historic mortars so we can compare test results and identify a replacement formula that closely mirrors the original. And because we stock the country’s largest selection of historic mortars chances are we have what you need on hand.

 

In addition to matching color, we will custom blend aggregate to replicate hard-to-match mortars, stucco, and plaster. We also offer special admixtures such as mica and lime inclusions for specialized historic restoration jobs.

 

For jobs that don’t require special aggregate blends, we offer custom tinting for our preblended historic mortars and stuccos. If you need a color match done fast, we have over 1,000 mortar channels for our historic lime mortars, Type O, and Type N formulations to choose from, so you can bring or send in a sample for this express matching service.
