Historic Mortar Analysis
We can also provide a historic mortar analysis study and report as required by your architect or in bid specifications. This may be necessary when it is important to understand the sand gradations or chemical makeup of the mortar in order to better design a replacement mortar formula.
Samples are examined for their color, texture, hardness, homogeneity, stability and relative porosity. Chemical testing will be carried out following the Jedrzejewska analytical method to determine the mortar’s composition. The aggregate will be analyzed visually to determine its color, shape and particle size. A sieve analysis will also be done to determine particle size distribution of the aggregate.
The cost for the historic mortar analysis and report is $500 per sample.Get The Form Email Support
