Question Re. Parging Over Brick


What does 'tooling' mean? does this mean I just push it in with the little rubber angle tool I use for caulking in bathrooms etc?

Also, is this the stuff I want then?

"GE 100% silicone concrete and masonry sealant" (looks like a tube of caulking)

Question Re. Parging Over Brick


we used a piece of 3/4" steel rod to save our backs,,, after jnt tooling for 100s of miles, you tend to walk bent over a bit sometimes

read dow corning's w-site for proper shape factor,,, we did the 1st NYSDOT hgwy jnt sealing contract using ge silicone over 35yrs ago,,, lots of it was still there 20 yrs later even tho the design life was 7yrs

Question Re. Parging Over Brick


Good to know re. the durability of the GE sealant, and thanks again to everyone for the useful info.

I guess I might have to worry about moisture seeping in through the concrete footer as per jomama's post, is there anything I could do about that?

Here are some pics of the pillar with the scratch coat on. One of the pics shows the pillar from the inside- you can see that the bricks are in pretty good shape. I did push a bit of mortar in between some of them though.

There's not much space between the parging and the concrete of the porch, so I might just put a bead of sealant along there without the backer rod (I'd have to chip out some cement to put a backer in).

I put a ''final'' coat on two of the faces last night before I ran out of time after work. Looks OK this morning, but kind of blotchy i.e. some areas look darker than others. I say ''final'' because i'm going to have to touch them up a bit still I think.

Question Re. Parging Over Brick


See where the columns meet the dirt / pebbles. Clean around them about 4" - 6", and put cement, like a little dome to the column, that will help keep the ground watter from collecting near the column. Basically make a little pitch, so that the water goes away from the columns.
