ya.. this old house has me full time job fix'n stuff

hey, it held up great. no micro cracks or anything. and my kitchen was MUCH warmer this past winter, and the mice were .. dunno .. outside i guess. i did not parge it yet as i wanted to see if the mortar held up on its own before i cover it.


when i excavate my basement i'll take a more serious look at it.. well, a structural engineer will - not me.

i did not research any interior solutions as in my case there was just a crawl space on the other side (i.e. "the cat hole") that nobody wants to go into .. believe me.

There is a company in Ohio, called Airplaco that makes a "Handy Grout" manual mortar/ grout pump that fits into a bucket and pumps material by a hand pump , like an old well pump handle, It has a 6ft hose and @ 200 psi. Problem is cost, @ $1,000. I looked to rent one in central Indiana, no one has it. I may have to go to Indianapolis to find. I too have a stone foundation and due to a recent infestation of rats/mice, several "holes" and "cracks" need to be filled. Good Luck, Ray

Re: Stone Foundation with large gaps and cracks


Have aTyndal stone foundation. Inside has gap about 4 inches X 8 inches X 14 inches near window frame. From what I read: 1) clean out well 2) spritz with water 3)coat with bonding agent 4) insert small stones and premixed mortar mix from hardware store with some bonding agent added 5) apply parge top coat after dry and seems OK

Do I have it right? Most pros don't want to be bothered with such a small job.

Re: Stone Foundation with large gaps and cracks


The easy way is polyurethane injection if it's not a structural problem, epoxy if it is, this may help.
