Is the parging cracked, flaking, discoloured?

Gently tapping with a wooden handle helps identify the hollow spots.
Are there cracks in your foundation? Water leaks?
Are deck support posts cracked??
Do you need concrete deck supports augered and filled?
Is a retaining wall beginning to fail, with some joints broken? A little TLC can go a long way.

Gouges in your garage floor, patches that need fill? Do you need a new floor?
