Parging is an affordable, efficient and protective coating that’s made of polymeric mortar. It can be applied on exterior and interior walls with ease. Not only a good parge coat protects your concrete foundation walls, but also provides insulation and aesthetics to your property. There are various styles and textures available to choose from.
Contrary to common belief, concrete is not a timeless product. Especially with Calgary’s weather, basement walls tend to get crumble and fall apart over time. In addition to weather, concrete walls get affected by dirt, moisture, ice and wind. At first, you might notice couple of cracks here and there and may think they are not important. However, in time hairline cracks turn into deep cracks and can cause leaks and structural damage that might cause a huge financial liability. Damages on parging and concrete walls should be taken seriously.
Parging can be applied on various wall types. Parge coating can be applied on wood, stucco, foam (ICF foundation) walls and chimneys. New installations and repairs are more affordable compared to other coating systems while providing the same quality and value. Servicing in Calgary, AB and surrounding areas, Solida Parging offers all kind of parging services for residential, commercial and industrial properties.
Parging repairs vary in size and shape. It can be as simple as a small patch or the repair might require an entire parging removal and fresh parging installation.

Parging is a type of coating and a finishing process that uses a polymeric mortar embedded in fiberglass mesh to protect and beautify vulnerable areas of a building’s exterior, such as above grade portion of foundation walls and concrete basement walls.
Some benefits include;
The cost varies for each job. Each project is different therefore we strongly advice to call us for a free estimate so we can take a look at it and give you a proper quote on-site.
It depends on the texture and the job. Depending on the area that needs to be filled, it might take from 2 days to a week for it to completely cure. For instance, acrylic parging requires a different approach than traditional parging and will need additional time to cure for 2 (two) different layers instead of 1 (one).
Acrylic parging uses the same base coat as the traditional parging. However, difference lies in the texture application. With traditional parging, texture will be applied by using a trowel, commonly known as trowel skip or california style, however acrylic parging uses a smooth acrylic finishing and need to be floated.
This is different than smooth parging that uses sponge float in order to smoothen the base parge coat.
Using the same coating process as EIFS (exterior insulation and foam systems) interior layers, we apply an adhesive, water barrier and fiberglass mesh embedded in base coat prior to parge coating on ICF foundations. Makes the parging strong and solid for decades to come.
If the leak’s cause if below grade, it’s a good idea to call foundation tradespeople before calling us. However, if the leak is due to cracks on foundation above grade, we’ll waterproof it before fixing the parging.
If you don’t like the traditional trowel skip or smooth parging, you can choose to go with acrylic parging. It has over 100 colors to choose from. Additionally, stone veneer siding and masonry might be a viable option for your foundation walls.
Parging can be applied on any concrete, wood, acrylic, block, brick, vertical stone surfaces. It can be applied on both exterior and interior walls.
You shouldn’t paint the parging. Chemicals in many paints will slowly eat into the parge coat and cause it to chip away over time. It will not survive the summer and winter cycles for long.
