Cement porch wall repair help please!
 
3 Attachment(s)

Greetings all. My front porch is your standard "block and fill" concrete porch. While the block and top slab are holding up OK, I have one VERTICAL side wall that's crumbling, as seen in the attached pictures.

As you might note, it's quite thick--a good 1" to 1 1/2". You'll also note the "overhang" of the top slab. Now, I know I can go the easy route and simply tear off the old "facade", apply some cement plaster, and be done; but, then this side would look odd compared to the other 3 sides.

My brother in law, who's in construction, mentioned something about a styrofoam and cement plaster mix, but can't think of the brand name or name of this stuff. Any ideas?

Also, any other ideas or suggestions would be immensely appreciated!
