Repair pitting in cinder block wall....

Posted by stupid48 (My Page) on

We have a cinder block wall around our house. We used to have grass but have put in a pool and desert landscaping instead. There is damage along the bottom of the wall caused by the grass sprinklers. It's not too bad. There are some small holes that I will use hydraulic cement (dap quick plug) to patch. What I would like to try and fix is the erosion and pitting and make it a little smoother. I guess I could try using the same stuff but I was thinking of some kind of cement-based material that I could trowel on. As well, I would expect to need some kind of bonding agent? It's really just along one course along the bottom. The reason I am doing this is that I want to paint the wall. Thanks for any advice....

Look around Abatron's site.

The epoxy coatings hold up pretty well.

You can mix them with the supplied sand (or your sand) to make a decent coating.

Thanks for the info. I sent them an email to make sure their products are paintable because it doesn't say in the tech sheet....
