External Kitchen Wall needs temporary attention for winter

Postby TheKitchenWall » Thu Jul 21, 2022 8:56 am

Hello Forum,

I've an external kitchen wall that is showing signs of age.

The render is starting to 'crater' with weathering/damp.

I am on a very tight budget - like a lot of folk - with around £50 to spare.

I want a solution to last me this winter.

Please can the forum offer any sensible advise?

A picture of the situation is attached to this post.

Thanks in advance,

Hi thekitchenwall,
Bearing in mind your budget, possibly the best solution will be to scrape off loose material and paint the wall with masonry paint. The will reduce any further water ingress.
