    • Remove the loose pieces of the wall in and around the crack.

    • Widen the crack to about an inch thick with an automatic angled concrete grinder.

    • A manual grinder may also work but will require more physical effort compared to the automatic grinder.

    • Use caution when operating power tools.

    • Follow the instructions on the cement patcher mix until the product is a paste consistency.

    • Soak a sponge in water and wet the now larger crack. Be sure to get water into the entire crack so that the area is moist.

    • Use a trowel to fill the mix into the crevices.

    • You may also use a steel putty knife or margin trowel.

    • Caution: Wear gloves to avoid getting paste onto your hands. Contact with skin could cause second or third-degree chemical burns.

    • Rewet the sponge and begin to smooth the patch mix into the wall.

    • Add stucco finish with the tile trowel.

    • Once the cemented area is covered with the stucco finish, take the foam plastering trowel and spread stucco finish to the edges of the tape.

    • If the trowel is too dry to spread the finish, moisten it with the water from earlier.

    • Blend the finish into the surrounding tape.
