Ok guys its maybe a strange one, tackieness might not be the word I'm looking for but it can be scraped with a finger nail quite easily, I think it may have a bitumen quality.
Please guys. I need some feedback as the wife is getting inpatiant.........know what I mean!
Thanks for the feedback but the wall is a gable wall with no chimney and it has definitly been covered with a man made material as they have lapped it round on to the joining walls and when I removed the wood that the hand rail was attached to and there was not trace of it.
I take your advice Doc 2 as I've a painter in the family and he did mention
an alkali paint but don't remember the 'resting part' is there a difference?
