Ever wondered why stucco is not going straight down to the ground. And why we have parging around the bottom of our exterior? Parging is a thin coat of stucco to protect the foundation from being exposed.The parging is more likely exposed to groundwater build up, grass, bushes and kicked rock. For those and other reasons the parge coat needs to be repaired and renewed every few years to guarantee a optimal protection for you foundation and base framing. If you parging fails water and other elements can get to it and slowly deteriorated it. A parge coat repair might cost you a few hundred dollars but a foundation repair a few thousand. That’s why it is highly recommended to have your Parging inspected and serviced every few years depending on its exposure and wear.
