New Parging Applications
Parging is a finishing process that uses a masonry based mortar to shield the vulnerable areas of a building’s exterior, like where an exterior foundation wall meets the ground. Parging protects your home or business from damage from snow, ice, and water.
Most often, when dealing with existing parging, the recommendation of parging experts will be to remove the old application and start fresh with a new layer. This ensures the best seal and is the most attractive option. With freeze and thaw cycles like those we see in Edmonton every year, you need to protect your building for many years to come.
Parging can go beyond the bottom of the building. J and J Coatings can provide attractive smooth or textured parging finishes for all surfaces of your home or business.

Whether it’s the sudden and unfortunate discovery of a brand new leak in your basement or the aesthetic horror of cracks in your existing parging, repairs are a fact of life.
A small crack in the parging of your home or business is like a small rattle in your car. The first instinct is to ignore it and hope for the best. Like your car, you ignore that warning sign at your peril.
When your parging fails, rain or snow can get into the building envelope and cause even more damage. While it’s true some cases of failure stem from a bad parging installation or defective materials, every building and every problem is unique.
It may be tempting hack together a DIY solution you found on YouTube for your parging repairs, but this is a job best left to the pros. Even if you manage something pleasing to the eye when you’ve done it yourself, a professional parging repair will help protect your home or business.
Better still, a professional parging repair can blend in with the existing finish so that your parging repairs are barely visible to the naked eye. You may even consider parging basement walls to add a more finished look.
