      Howdy guys, Kirk and Jay here with Kirk Giordano Plastering. I like the way
      that sounds for some reason. haha. Been watchin a lot dudes. I think I’ve
      said that already. Hell, you may even of replied to something and I didn’t
      even check… Mr.Giordano(s) I have an old house with sandstone foundation.
      I don’t know much about that kinda of stuff and I certainly can’t pay
      someone. I bet you dudes know a thing or two about it. Mortar is gone, in
      some spots and dry/loose/brittle. Wonder what to do?

      Howdy TehBerbDean, I do know allot about what you are describing, I am
      sending you a title that you can copy and paste in the search channel box
      “How to repair Interior basement foundation walls.” This area won’t allow
      the direct link. Best wishes with your project and have good evening! Kirk

      Hey Kirk, was that Topps 900 Rainbuster Sealant you used in the crack?

    • StuccoPlastering:

      Big Steve, how are you, yes it was rain buster, I called in rain gutter but
      as you know because you’re a fella who buys and applies nothing but the
      best for your company. It’s an alternative to my sikaflex polyurethane
      caulking. I usually keep a case of each on my truck they say this
      rain-buster 900 Polycarbamate sealant & adhesive is the ultimate in
      waterproofing and sealing, I agree it is high-grade polyurethane. But of
      course I’m no engineer. Have a good weekend! Kirk Giordano Plastering

      Can you do this with concrete block walls?

    • StuccoPlastering:

      Howdy Mr. Myers, You can do this, but there are better ways to repair
      concrete block. Are the blocks painted, or skim coated with stucco. Is it a
      structural or simple and normal crack? Questions such as these determine
      the best procedure to fix whatever you have to work from. Sorry I can’t
      answer based on just your question. Send me a picture I will give you my
      best opinion. Have a great day! Kirk Giordano Plastering

    • Joshua Valenzuela:

      Hi, I was wondering I have a house I’m working on it has a Vertical
      Staircase type crack the outside frame of the house is cement – cinderblock
      with a stucco or plaster coating on the outside and the inside, the crack
      is from the inside of the house to the outside you can see outside. I
      filled the gap with some expansion foam for now, and came across your video
      any recommendations? Can I do this with it. The Gap Grows some but it’s an
      old house

    • StuccoPlastering:

      Evening Joshua Valenzuela, expanded foam work very well, when it done
      expanding take a troel or putty knife and scrape of the excess. Sika-flex
      caulking is better and stronger, but I have use many cans of the foam stuff
      too. Best wishes, kirk Giordano plastering

      Hey Kirk, when finishing a patch like this, how do you match the color?

      I have an old house with an attached porch, all stuccoed in a heavy lace
      style, with a buff/beige color similar to house in this video. My stucco is
      not painted though. There are a few old structural cracks in the front
      porch walls that someone repaired before with some kind of grey caulking,
      like you did in step 1 in the video. But they didn’t float & feather a top
      coat. I want to touch these up & blend them into the rest of the stucco,
      but also match the color.
