My Aunt has a 2-story brick home with a basement, built about 1938. The outside basement wall is poured concrete. It has cracks and the stucco has fallen away on about 20% of the wall along with some pieces of concrete. Can the wall and cracks be covered with new stucco after removing the loose material and still provide the support for the house?
Should the loose concrete and the cracks be widened to pour new concrete in the spaces?
