Just had some brickwork done, an external window bricked up and the eaves completed.
I am unsure if the mortar the brickies used is a good enough match. The local supplier only had one type of white sand but it just seems to be so far off the original colour.
Grateful for any comments, thanks
Hopefully I have linked the photo properly

Hi Mrs Google
It Appears the original mortar was made from yellow sand and cream cement?
