Parging question


Hi all,

I have some concrete damage at the back of the house below the brick work. The area is approx. 5 feet wide x6 inches high and 4 inches deep. I am told that instead of repairing the concrete, I can fill it in with parging cement. Any truth to this?

Thanks

Thanks AC! I've decided not to try using 4" of parging cement...I'll build up the concrete work first. It's a small area anyway.
