Re: Patching foundation


You would not want to use a patching material stronger than the cinder block. You may want to use a type "O" mortar mix for the patch material.
As for the Metal Lath if the block has been painted or covered with another material than you would use the Lath if just plain block skip the Lath it would cause more problems than it would correct.
