cracks in cement balustrade


My balcony has a cement balustrade consisting of a horizontal cement beam supported by vertical cement columns.(pillars)

Cracks have appeared in some of the columns and the cracks are gradually widening.

What would be the best way to fill in those cracks to improve cosmetic appearance and at the same time to strengthen the columns.

Thank you

To take a leaf out of @BIM_Engineer 's playbook we need photos!

Re: cracks in cement balustrade

Welcome to Workshop @Arty and thanks again for joining in the discussion. We hope you receive lots of helpful advice for this project from our community members. But as Brad suggested, I would encourage you to add some photos so members can see what you are dealing with. Please let me know if you need a hand with uploading them, or ever need any help getting the most from the site. 


Thanks for joining us, and we look forward to reading more about your projects and plans in future.
