Question

Outlet Hole -- Interior Concrete Block


In preparation for hanging drywall, framing was added to the below grade concrete block in our family room. This necessitated moving existing outlets forward. Now we have rectangular holes left in the cement block.

We'd appreciate recommendation as to what we should use to cover or fill or block these holes.

Thanks in advance for any advice and/or suggestions.

Hydrolic cement works well---the cement swells a bit as it sets--locking it into the hole.

Typically it is sold in small bags or buckets----and is very common--you should not have trouble finding it.
