Historic Preservation Education: Repointing Mortar presentation -- from the Capitol Hill Restoration Society (CHRS)

See this message from the Capitol Hill Restoration Society:

If Bloomingdale were to become a Historic District, then the topic below would be of greater interest to Bloomingdale property owners. 



To repoint, or not to repoint: that is the question! Mortar may be the most over-looked and under-appreciated aspect of your row house. Architectural conservator Justine Posluszny Bello will discuss mortar and repointing fundamentals for the Capitol Hill homeowner at the next Preservation Café, sponsored by the Capitol Hill Restoration Society, Thursday, April 21. This will include a discussion of mortar terminology and tips, signs of trouble, and things to be aware of when you’re considering embarking on a repointing project.

Bring your questions! The presentation will begin at 6:30 pm at Ebenezers Coffeehouse, 2nd and F Streets, NE, basement. The event is free and handicapped accessible and the public is encouraged to attend. No reservations required.
