At Home Painters Toronto, we understand you may have questions about our foundation parging repair and installation services. To help you make an informed decision, we have compiled a list of frequently asked questions and their answers.

What is Parging?

Parging is the application of a protective and decorative layer of mortar to the exposed surface of a building’s foundation. Over time, various factors, such as weather conditions, moisture, and natural wear and tear, can cause this parging layer to crack or deteriorate. This not only impacts the aesthetic appeal of your property but can also compromise its structural integrity. Repairing damaged foundation parging promptly is essential to prevent further damage and to maintain the foundation’s protective qualities. Additionally, proper installation of new parging ensures long-term durability and resilience, safeguarding your home from potential issues.

And that’s where we come in! At Home Painters Toronto, we offer a wide range of parging repair and installation services. We’ve provided homeowners in Toronto and the GTA with quality services since 1991.

With over 36 years of experience under our belts, we know precisely what it takes to get your foundation looking beautiful again. Whether you need to repair damaged parging or install a new layer, our team of experts is ready to help.

How To Tell If You Need Foundation Parging Repair and Installation

Identifying the need for foundation parging repair or installation can save you from bigger issues down the line. Here are some signs to watch for:

Visible Cracks

  • Small Hairline Cracks: These are early indicators that the parging layer is weakening.
  • Large, Vertical Cracks: These suggest more severe damage that needs immediate attention.

Peeling or Flaking

  • Surface Peeling: If the parging is peeling away, it’s losing its protective quality.
  • Flaking/Chipping: Pieces falling off are signs of deterioration over time.

Moisture Issues

  • Damp Spots: Any moisture marks on the foundation walls indicate water penetration.
  • Mould or Mildew: Persistent moisture can lead to mould growth, suggesting the need for repair.

Structural Movement

  • Shifted Foundation: If the foundation appears to be shifting, it may be due to eroded or damaged parging.
  • Uneven Floors: This can be a symptom of foundation issues stemming from poor parging.

Age of Parging

  • Over 10 Years Old: Even well-maintained parging needs to be checked as it ages.
  • Prior Repairs: Areas that have been repaired before might require fresh checks.

Cosmetic Appeal

  • Faded Appearance: An old, faded parging layer can make your home look less appealing.
  • Discoloration: Colour changes can also indicate moisture problems and wear.


Repairing damaged foundation parging is crucial for several reasons:

  • Preventing Further Damage: Fixing cracks and deterioration early on can prevent more significant issues from developing.
  • Protecting Structural Integrity: A parging foundation provides a protective layer against moisture, weather conditions, and other external factors that can weaken the foundation.
  • Aesthetic Appeal: A well-maintained parging layer enhances the overall look of your property.

The cost of foundation parging repair and installation can vary based on several factors, including the extent of damage, the size of the area to be parged, and the specific materials used. On average, the foundation parging cost in Ontario typically ranges from $3 to $10 per square foot. This estimate includes both materials and labour, but it’s crucial to get a detailed quote from a professional service provider to understand the specific costs for your project.

If you’re curious about the potential costs, here are some approximate figures:

  • Small handyman project: $1,500 to $3,000 + HST
  • Medium handyman project: $3,000 to $5,000 + HST
  • Large handyman project: $5,000 to $10,000 + HST
  • XL handyman project: $10,000 to $20,000 + HST

Unless otherwise noted on the contract, yes, our quotes usually include both materials and labour costs. We only utilize premium materials to ensure durability and endurance, and our experienced professionals provide expert craftsmanship.

The duration of your project depends on the scope and complexity of the work required. During our initial consultation, we will discuss a timeframe estimate and continue to keep you updated as the project progresses.

However, if you’re looking for a general idea of how long it might take, here are some average project timelines:

  • Small handyman project: 1 to 2 business days
  • Medium handyman project: 2 to 4 business days
  • Large handyman project: 5 to 7 business days
  • XL handyman project: 1 to 2 weeks

We have a team of skilled and experienced in-house carpenters, handymen, and painters (not subcontractors) who specialize in foundation parging repairs and installations. The team member assigned to your project will have the necessary expertise to complete the job to the highest standard.
