Parging is the application of stucco to the foundation of the home specifically. It has become a very popular product that is used to increase the value and appearance of the home.
It can also protect the foundation from deterioration. It is popular because of its versatility, appearance, availability and durability, for commercial and residential application. It provides a very affordable finish.
It takes many years of experience to apply this material properly but because of its very nature slight imperfections are expected. It is still a great product for covering up less than perfect looking foundation, brick or other exterior finishes.
Parging is durable and water shedding, therefore, mold and fungus resistant, fire resistant, impact resistant and still has high cosmetic value. Throughout history it has proved to be durability in all types of climates.

Parging and Cold Weather Application
All stucco whether acrylic or other wise including parging has a seasonal application, that is, stucco cannot be applied when the air temperature drops below 0-1° degrees Celsius because these materials need 24 hours to begin to set up.
This is very important to remember that if you applied these products below or around these temperatures you run the risk of the efflorescence (a white powder being drawn out of the material) in the base coat or uneven in the finish coat because it has cured at different rates.
There is even a greater risk of the temperature dropping below 0° degrees Celsius, which will cause the stucco to crack and fall off in sections.
These conditions apply not only to the application of the materials, but their preparation(mixing) and storage as well. It is strongly recommended to wait until the weather conditions stabilize before completing the job. Due to these risks and the extra costs incurred doing winter work our company opts to do contracts only in stable weather.
