How to fix capping bricks that have fallen off?

 Have a brick wall that has been there for a long time and now the capping bricks have fallen off  (approx 60 bricks).  There is nothing wrong with the wall just the capping bricks.  The bricks were originally laid using mortar.  Do i just use mortar again or try something else and if so what?  Sorry i don't have photos.

Re: How to fix capping bricks that have fallen off.

Hello @Student 


Thanks for sharing your question about repairing your capping bricks. I recommend using Bastion 20kg Premix Mortar or similar. I suggest removing all of the old mortar before applying the new mix. It's best to use a builder's line when repositioning the capping bricks. 


My best advice is to mix only what you need for the repairs you are about to make for the day. Mixing the entire bag in one go is not advised. 


Here is a handy step-by-step guide: How to build a brick wall.
