Complete the look of your foundation walls with parging. Most homes have one to two feet of foundational wall exposed which can look like an incomplete job if nothing is done. Even if your home has had recent foundation repair work done, parging can help unify the look as the repair work might not be a perfect match.
If your building has exposed exterior walls and has just had brick repair or mortar repair done, extend the life of these repairs with parging. Your exterior walls face the most brunt of the natural elements. Keep them strong and durable by adding an added layer of defence.
If you have a new separate basement entrance with exposed foundation walls, parging or adding stucco is a great way to complete the finalized look of the entrance. Parging basement walls will allow them to last longer as it will prevent water damage from occurring.
GOOD TO KNOW
DO IT RIGHT
IMPORTANT FACTS ABOUT PARGING WALL SURFACES
Before you decide on parging wall surfaces, there are few important facts you should consider first. As great as it might seem, parging might not be the service you need. In fact, you may need to fix some underlying issues with the brick or concrete blocks first before parging.
WHAT IT ACTUALLY IS
Parging is a process in which you cover an exterior brick or cement block wall with plaster or mortar which typically appears in an ornamental pattern. It helps provide a better appearance for the home while providing some waterproofing benefits. It is especially beneficial after a masonry repair job such as a chimney repair because it can help unify the entire masonry project.
HOW & WHEN TO APPLY IT
If you tried parging your walls before but were left disappointed with small cracks, it's probably because you applied it at the wrong time. Parging should only be done when the temperature is consistent and remains above 5 degrees Celsius. If the temperature gets below freezing, the remaining water in the plaster will freeze and expand.
DIY OR MASONRY CONTRACTORS

BENEFITS OF PARGING WALLS
Take your house to the next level and experience the benefits of parging your exterior walls.
PROVIDES ADDITIONAL INSULATION
Although a small adjustment, parging your walls can actually help with insulation and make your home more energy efficient. By adding a barrier of plaster, you're able to create a more unified cover over the bricks or concrete blocks separating your basement walls with the outside and other elements. This will allow you to keep the cold from snow and ice away from the blocks which can be exposed on the inside of your home such as a cellar.
CREATES A WEATHER BARRIER
Most masonry repairs such as chimney repairs, brick repairs and mortar repairs are caused due to weather. Parging creates a weather barrier which will help you avoid frequent repairs. Most mortar joints get destroyed due to their exposure to weather such as sun, snow, rain and ice. By having an additional weather barrier in place, the structural integrity of the mortar between bricks and concrete blocks won't be easily compromised.
IMPROVED CURB APPEAL
Parging is a great way to make your home look complete. Not only does parging provide structure benefits, but it also provides aesthetic benefits too. It can make almost everything look better with a unified smooth surface. With parging being able to come in different colours, you'll have a wider range of options to take the exterior of your home to the next level.
