How to mix cement
Cement is the dry, powdery substance that binds all masonry projects together. If you mix it with water and sand, you get mortar. When cement is mixed with water, sand, and gravel, it becomes concrete.
Repairing bricks
If you notice a cracked or broken brick, or if the mortar between the bricks is crumbling, it might be possible to make the repairs yourself. Sometimes the hardest part about replacing a brick is finding one that matches the others.
Tools for repairing masonry
