Client –

Thank you very much for inspecting my house last year.

I have a question concerning my house foundation; attached photo. I notice this part of my foundation becomes rough, and am wondering if the foundation is exposed too much, and has some sign to turn worse. If so, could you please give me some advice to turn this around? Highly appreciate your help!

The porous foundation surface has been this way since the foundation was poured. Many times when the builder’s subcontractor does a pour job of tamping the concrete to remove the air pockets they will dress the foundation with a slurry coat to conceal unfinished surface.
