What Is Parging?
In general, this process involves the application of a coating over a wall surface. This coating is mostly cement, and surfaces that are normally parged include foundations, basement walls, exterior walls and masonry chimneys.
The mortar used varies depending on the elements used in the concrete mix. The parging repair concrete mix ratio will vary depending on the application’s purpose, and a professional mason has the skills you need to make your structure stand out.
So what does parging foundation walls or parging basement walls cover? Foundation walls are the surfaces that need protection most. Although the improvement is only aesthetic, the cement coat protects the brick blocks used in construction from weather damage.
This is especially important in areas like Brantford where the freeze and thaw cycle can have a detrimental effect on masonry work. Instead of leaving the blocks bare, covering foundation walls is particularly important if you want your bricks to last longer.
It also gives surfaces a clean look and by applying a coat of paint with a latex base, you protect the brickwork underneath from weather damage. Coating basement walls also hide imperfections on the surface and get rid of formwork and marks.
If the weather in Brantford does not get you started on thinking about protecting foundation walls, maybe insulation will. Parging will also help protect your exterior insulation, from both impact and sunlight.
