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
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.
