Can anyone tell me what I should use to fill in cracks in my
concrete block house? The cracks seem to zig zag but follow
the blocks. Going from top to bottom. 1950 house with the
addition being built in the mid 70's. Probably from settling
but would like to fill in the gaps, approx. 1/8 to 1/16 inch wide.
It is just in one area and it is the addition. Any recommendation
would be appreciated.
I also have a concrete block house, and for narrow gaps like you describe I
have used a latex- based concrete pathing compound that I found at the local
hardware store. It is a pre-mixed goop that looks like cement, but feels
like latex. (I just went to my shop to look for it so I could get you the
name, but I couldn't find it) It goes on easily, and has held up well for
several years now. For larger cracks I would use a cement based latex
patching compound, I have some Quik-Crete patch for that purpose.
