Efficient and Affordable Calgary Parging

Similar to stucco and stucco repair, parging is a finishing process applied to enhance the appearance of your home’s exterior. Parging uses a masonry-based mortar rather than a stucco mixture. This coating is typically applied above surface-grade concrete foundations. Like Calgary stucco, parging is an excellent way to create an aesthetic appeal to cover any surface imperfections that may be present in a concrete or concrete-block surface. The process can be completed on new or existing walls and on various types of surfaces. Common places for parging include foundations, columns, vertical surfaces, walls, bricks, stones, and concrete. Parging remains an economical solution to aesthetically improving a variety of masonry surfaces.

Restorative and Reliable Parging Repair

    • Parging typically follows a factory formula. The composition is called a Type N Mortar which is composed of Portland cement, sand, and lime and comes in various pre-coloured mixes.

Acrylic Coating is a multi-coat system. An initial base coat is composed of a combination of Portland Cement, liquid acrylic, and a fibreglass armature. A finish coat consisting of 100% acrylic paste is then applied with a hand trowel. Acrylic coats are available in a wide range of colours with varying options for texture; these coatings typically result in a high-quality finish that has excellent adhesion, durability, flexibility and water-resistant qualities. Parging is ideal for Calgary where weather conditions can be harsh and de-icing salts are commonly used. Parging is typically more expensive than cement mixes, but the vast range of benefits is worth the cost.
