Two questions

1. Tuckpointing. We have a 50+ year old rambler that has areas where the motar is partially missing on our brick. How difficult is it to match the current motar so as to not have an obvious mismatch with the existing motar. Anyone know of someone in the Minneapolis area who does tuckpointing that they would recommend?

2. Previous owner had outdoor carpet on poured concrete front porch. We took up the carpet this fall and now have old adhesive that needs to be taken off. I swear the stuff is harder than the concrete itself. Any suggestion for removing the old adhesive?

The mortar can probably be matched [not perfect but close] May take a little work with a good eye.

Paint thinner should loosen the glue some. Probably take a lot of elbow grease.
