Hi all

Long time listener, first time poster.

Have a 1930s two storey double brick art deco house that needs some repointing and TLC.
From research on here and other sites Iím guessing it will be lime mortar.

A few older threads on here about repointing similar places, wondering if anyone can share some doís and doníts they learned and what mixes and products they used.

Also what techniques did you use?
Looking at the Vic Heritage documents about repointing old mortar, seems like a hell of a job protecting the mortar and ensuring it cures properly over a few weeks. Is this the only way to go about it?
Do you do a small patch at a time?

Any help greatly appreciated. Feels like it will be a long process.
