How do I repair falling sheets of masonry on cellar walls?
In this 1909 house with a Michigan basement, block walls were added in the 40's and the "knee walls" with dirt behind them were retained, but have a half to three-quarter masonry coating covering the dirt is failing. The big box store people are too young to have a clue as to what product or mix to use. I am thinking an old-school mason knows this situation, so seeking what KIND of bagged product or sand PLUS another, to mix and apply to falling sheets of old masonry. (The knee walls are 36" high, with a "24 inch deep "shelf" and then block wall to the rim joist.) Hope thie pix helps. Thanks a trillion!
