About the author:

 James Nech is the leading expert in the field of masonry restoration or brick repair. He has changed and revolutionized this industry many times in his life.

James comes from a long line of Masonry Contractors, and has grown up in this industry. As he learned from his father the skills of Masonry he began to notice that although there were many people who repaired damaged bricks and mortar, it always looked horrible and generally masked (not repaired) the damage.

As the years passed and his knowledge grew, he studied this problem and came up with a set of guidelines, and a system for completing the repairs.

After establishing this system for properly repairing the cracks and damage, it become necessary to make further improvements to the system. Specifically in the appearance of these repairs.

James decided that if these repairs didn't match in color, texture, and tooling that they were still not correct. After recognizing this problem, he came up with a system and wrote the formulas which allow you to match any color or texture of mortar every time.

His systems, techniques, and formulas have not needed changed or revised in their many years of use. Over the past ten years, James Nech has taught many people how to use his systems and formulas. Some of them you may have heard of like Advantage Masonry.

Now this information is available to you in his Do-It-Yourself handbook "The Brick Repair Guide". Look for video-add-ons to this guide for additional assistance. To find your copy visit his website at

This book is amazing. It tells exactly how to do the repairs. I also wanted to say thanks for the mortar match. It is perfect. I can't see where I fixed these cracks.
