I have a field stone foundation in a ~100 yr old house an urban area and I'm planning to finish a portion of the basement. I was considering parging the wall prior to framing, but now I'm tempted to just leave it alone. I will be framing the walls leaving some space between the foundation and the wall for ventilation. There is some efflourescence but generally the basement is quite dry. Would you guys therefore recommend just leaving the foundation wall alone? Thanks.

Too many threads going on at once for me to keep track. IMO everyone should start their own thread.

Parging over stone foundation


Hello, today I have repointed my foundation, half way through. My house is 1920 bungalow I live in Manitoba, Canada. Cold winters, hot summers. I think I'm doing a pretty good job. Some of the joints were more than 12" deep so have filled in as much as I could. After removing the mortar I blew out the remainder surface sand before I started. Now my questions are (btw I used a pre mix mortar, I just added water): How long do I have to wait before parging over the foundation? I'm confused as whether it's good or bad to parge over foundation as per some of the conversations I have read. If I parge, I'm thinking that I'm supposed to use same mortar 1/4 - 1/2" thick? The only exposed interior basement wall is the furnace room which I have to point some areas as well. It is completely parged over to look sort of smooth. Is that what I'm supposed to do to outside foundation or which would take away the "stone" look or what? I'm just a girl lol Thanks!!
