Lime mortar cracking – how to repair?

1.08K viewsLime Mortars


I have recently applied a new lime mortar to the gable end of my house. I raked out the old mortar around the stone to a fair old depth and then put new stuff in. As I came to brush the mortar back, in certain places, the stone moved as I hit around it, causing small cracks to appear. The mortar has now set too stiff for me to push it back. Has anyone any suggestions on how to repair this?
