There is a builder that used the wrong color of mortar on a new home that they are building for a client of mine. She wants the correct color put on the brick the builder wants to do one of 2 options, 1). Chiseled out the old mortar and re-apply the new color or 2). Stain the lighter color with a darker color.
My client is concerned that none of the options would last a long time or as long as taking down the existing brick and mortar and starting new.
Can you let me know if any of the 2 options will last and how long in your opinion?
