How to fill holes in concrete blocks

Hi,

 

This is my first post on this forum.  I love this site and look forward to learning from other people.

 

My garage is made from cinder block /concrete blocks and over the years has had a lot of holes drilled in its walls.  I am not too concerned about the colour of the filler, I just want to fill in the holes.

If anyone has any advice I would really appreciate it.

Thanks,

Terry

I suggest this product. A comperhensive filler and is rated for indoor and outdoor use. Ready to go no mixing required.

Re: How to fill holes in concrete blocks

I haven't used it but I'd stick with the one I sent you simply based on it already being in a squeeze bottle. Will make it easier to apply and less clean up.

 

Hope that helps.

You can use any motar, same as you would for between stones or bricks. You can also use a colouring to make it the same as the wall.
