A flooded basement or seepage affect in your home cannot only put the safety of your house in jeopardy, but it can also have an adverse effect on its aesthetics. This is perhaps one of the worst things a house owner an experience in his entire life. It is not only a threat to the structural stability of the house, but it can lead to the mold as well. Most often, untreated basements and unattended cracks are the biggest reasons of these molds and floods. There are many methods to resolve this problem and the most common of them is parging.
Parging is a method in which professionals like Astra Construction put a coat on your walls which acts as a barrier. This barrier prevents water from seeping into the walls and basement. As a result, your walls and basement remain safe from molds and moisture related damage. You can also use parging for preventing the water from entering the basement or sealing the cracks in the walls.
Parging can also be referred as a technique to finish your home walls. As compared to stucco, parging uses a masonry-based mortar. You can use this material on both existing and new walls as well as on residential and commercial buildings.
