When Cinder Block Wall Meets Old Cobblestone Foundation... HOW?
 
3 Attachment(s)
I am looking for some suggestions on how to patch/seal the gaps on the porch foundation which is cinder block to the old original foundation of the home.

I have had thoughts like, Vinyl Patch Cement, Mortor, Great Stuff, Caulking and a foam backer, roofing tar, etc...

Now I need some advice from a more expeerienced handyman!

Thanks...

Dave

I would treat it like a durrock bathtub surround - using backerboard mesh and mortar as filler.

Mix up a batch of sand mix and fill the gaps. Once it dries, caulk the places it hits the wood.
