parging a chimney

The chimney at camp is starting to crack. Instead of repointing I was thinking of parging the whole thing. Has any ever done this, what is the mix and am I able to add a dye. I have two chimneys that I will be doing this to they both stick about 3 foot out of the center of the roof. Thanks in advanced

Yes you can dye, i always used mortar mix with a poly additive to give it some flex. Don't put it too thick or it will crack even with the poly.

Anybody can shoot deer on the farm ground....You earn it in the mountains.......

3 to 1, sand to mortar. I personally don't like premix because it never seems to be sticky enough. Dye or poly can be added per instructions.
Start at the bottom and work your way up. Use a sealer after it dries, Thompsons....etc.

Alrighty then!

Parging will crack eventually no matter what you use and it will spall off.

Different materials expand and contract at different rates.

The deer didn't disappear.... the 250,000 guys who used to walk around and make the deer move did.
