basement


I have a hundred year old house and the basement has walls that are made of round rocks and some sort of mortar. Well the mortar is pretty much gone and sand is creeping though the gaps in the rock wall. I was wondering what procedure I should use to repair the wall.

Might try hydraulic cement. The big box stores have a dube like thing similar to what cake decorators use for icing cakes. Or just mash the stuff in the cracks with a stick or something.
