Hi I have an old Kelvinator air conditioner in the brickwall of my house which sits inside the familyroom and the exterior section is outside in the carport,(which you have to make sure you don't bang your head on it).Once this is taken out i will have a double brick wall on both sides to fill.Inside is not too much of a problem as i can fill the brick wall and paint it after.However the outside is an issue as the bricks are old (35yrs) i will have a job getting the same brickes to match.I know i could render or paint it but i am looking for other ideas about how i could just fill it with something that could look ok. Thank you
Hi @apples2, depending on the size of the hole you should get away with using Mortafil. There are a few colour options to match your bricks but failing that you can simply sand/paint to match as best as possible. Let us know how you go - pics are always helpful
Thank you ProjectPete, The mentioned hole is 59cmx76cm,i am not sure what was meant by using Mortafil as it only comes in tubes,as far as i am aware.I maybe didn't explain the project very well.
The carport has old bricks which i will not be able to match,so i was looking at filling the above size hole with bricks,then looking for ideas about how i could hide the bricks that don't match as it will look unsightly and i don't want to paint or render the carport.I appreciate your reply.

Can you possibly post a picture of the hole in your brick wall and the extra bricks with your mobile phone?
