Flaking and joint failure occur over time with the build up of hydrostatic pressure . Over the years these joints eventually force them selves out. The cement we use to re-point these failing joints only after removing the aged lime mix has great advantages for your basement or foundation walls, our cement is faster setting, higher strength, more durable and has less shrinkage, allowing for true water proofing and basement sealing.
