It’s important to add the right amount of water and sand to your cement. Too much of either can create a mortar mix that will not stand the test of time. A chemical reaction between water and treated lime in the mortar mix is what causes the material to harden properly. Once water is added to a mortar mix you have a limited amount of time to use the mixture before it starts to cure. We take pride in having really uniform and clean mortar joints and leaving you with a very clean job site.
