Tips on the Mortar Repair Process
The thing I learned about this is that the SimpleSet mortar requires a large amount of time to set properly. I came back to the project about 12 hours after application and the mortar was not solid when I touched it.
So I just waited another day before doing the next layer of thin set.
When working with the sponge, I find that it’s best to have almost no water content in the sponge. Basically, I want to wring out the sponge as much as humanly possible before using the sponge to texturize the area that I filled with mortar.
Overall, I believe this is a great solution to a cracked mortar wall like this.
I hope this helped. If you have any details or suggestions to help others, please let us know in the comment section below.
