Eliminate the Weak Spot in Your Building with Parging Foundation Repair

Dry Tech Waterproofing Solutions specializes in drainage and basement waterproofing solutions for new or existing buildings, including parging foundation repair to prevent water from leaking inside.

For foundation repair companies, one of the simplest ways to add supplementary protection against flooding and water leaks is performing parging foundation repair in due time. But what exactly is foundation parging and why is it so important?

Foundation parging is the coating applied to the above the ground portion of the building foundation. While it has a decorative role, its key purpose is to act as a barrier against water. 

Why You May Need Parging Foundation Repair

Wear and tear affects each part of a building, but especially those most exposed to the elements and to temperature variations. Once you notice cracks at the foundation of the building, parging foundation repair is in order.

Also, the composition of foundation parging affects the rate of wear and tear. There are two types of parge coatings on the market:

  • Cement parging – less resistant, but very easy to work with and available in a wide range of colors
  • Acrylic coating – more durable, characterized by high adherence, air tightness, and flexibility

When selecting the material, you should weigh the importance of visual appeal against the frequency of parging basement walls repairs.

The Process of Parging Foundation Repair

Damaged foundation parging is an entryway for water into your building. In case of minor damage, some owners consider refreshing it with a coat of paint. However, the coat of paint may trap moisture underneath, leading to mold growing on the walls.

The only viable solution is a professional parging foundation repair. The complexity of this procedure varies depending on the condition of the parge coating. If you act as soon as you notice the first small cracks, the contractor will finish the job in a short time.

Most major parging basement walls repairs involve:

  • Removing all the loose parge coating from the wall
  • Dampening the exposed surface with a soft water spray
  • Spreading the fresh mix and leaving it to dry for 24 hours
  • Applying a second layer of foundation parging.
