Question Brick walls

undefined
The mortar in the brick walls in the front of my house has become old and in some places has crumbled, or turned to concrete dust. It there a product I can fill these areas in with? I am somewhat handy but the thought of mixing concrete may be over my head. Something already prepared would be great - if such a thing exists. Any advice would be greatly appeciated!
Thanks

At your Home Center they will have bags of Premixed Mortar. I would recommend a Type "S" Mortar mix it will be a higher grade material and should be last longer and repel the moisture better.

If you have any more questions feel free to fire away?
