Parging compacted soil in basement

Postby dpsours on Sat Nov 03, 2018 5:07 pm

Our basement has some areas where the builders left the undisturbed soil in place and parge over it. Over the years, some of the parging has fallen off.

Do you have any recommendations as to what I should use to patch it and how to do it? Some areas are pretty big, and there are both vertical and horizontal surfaces.
