Watch out for Mortar Sticking to Porous Brick

Some old fashioned looking brick is very rough and has a porous exterior. This looks great on your house, but be very careful that the mason does not splatter or splash any mortar on this kind of brick. It will adhere to the surface of the brick and be very difficult to remove. Ask the brick supplier about this issue before you decide on your brick and/or discuss with your mason.
