Interior Masonry Wall Exposed


I have a 1950's era Chicago Georgian. I am demoing my daughter's room. We've had issues recently after moving in of poor retention of heat in our last winter. When I ripped down the cement board and exposed the interior masonry wall I noticed many large gaps in the masonry. Before I stud the wall out, I want to properly seal the gaps.

What type of compound am I going to use? I know to clean it out well before hand. It doesn't need to be perfect but I would like it to last as long as possible.

Everyone I call for this says it will be too much money and to hire someone like a handyman.

I will provide pictures if needed. Thanks!

Welcome to the forums!

Generally gaps in masonry are filled with mortar but we can't see what you see, posting a pic or two might alter our advice -
