    It would look odd against the old mortar
    I think
    Usually when I do them I take out the old mortar and quote for it but customer is always over the moon when the whole area looks new
    It's not a big job
    I use a cordless grinder go down the centre of each join
    Then the mortar usually flicks straight out the rest the pressure washer will remove
    It doesn't take long and the money is good

    I've haven't done it by sqm for long time
    I know now by liking how long each job will roughly take and work out from that
    So first day would be removing the mortar and cleaning
    Second day repointing with geo fix
    Depending on the joints you will need probly 100ish in Geofix
    So 550

    Not a prob
    Don't under sell it
    Tell the customer it will look like new and if they got a builder in they'd want that just to remove and repoint
    Where just as professional as them
