Finishing Foundation Walls on the Kuppersmith Project House

By: Danny Lipford

To match the existing foundation on the Kuppersmith Project house, several skim coats of cement were applied to the concrete block foundation walls on the new additions. Multiple coats were used to keep the joints in the concrete blocks from showing through.

    I have a 60 year old home. The previous homeowner put permanently attached foam and painted it for insulation on the foundation? It’s starting to tears bits off from the lawnmower hitting it . My question is…should I remove it and try to remove the painted foam and concrete the foundation. How do I do this as I’m not handy? My house is brick. It’s a very small house. I am wanting to sell my house to relocate to a different city.
    Please help. Thank you very much!
