Hello,

I recently moved into a house built in the 1920s that has a brick foundation. The mortar between the bricks are in desperate need of repointing. Can I safely use a mortar from a home center, or do I need to mix a lime mortar? I have read that lime mortar was used up until the 1860s, so I am guessing a regular mortar is fine, but I want to be sure.

thanks!
