4/12: Choosing the mortar colour

Choosing the mortar colour

If done correctly, there is a lot less mortar visible with ZERO® masonry than with traditional masonry. But an unsuitable mortar colour can still be undesirable. We advise to opt for a darker mortar to reinforce the shadow effect of the joint. For a more unicoloured effect, you can choose a matching coloured mortar, e.g. red mortar for a red facing brick.

Many manufacturers of mortar offer coloured mortars. For more information, we can refer you to a building material supplier near you.
