Can any one suggest what would be the best formula for mortar for a 1920's Californian bungalow. I've got loose mortar in a couple of places and need to repoint. The mortar looks to be lime based but i'll don't know what the formular might be. And would I need to purchase lime putty or would hydrated lime be okay.
