Hi I live in an old house in the countryside; subject to very wet, windy weather. The walls are solid and rendered. some of the external paintwork is peeling off due to previously using cheap paint. I need to stabilize these walls prior to re-painting with 'Dulux Weathershield Masonry Paint'. I had thought of jet-washing all the very loose paint off, allowing the wall to dry and applying a 'Unibond' and water undercoat. Does anyone have any other, better ideas? Back to top
Well - you have damp inner walls and peeling paint on the outside.
A brick home?
I'm no pro in your area of issues but it seems to me as if your problem is bigger than you realize and the external and internal problem is connected. If your walls have become saturated thoroughly due to humidity and rain-exposure and so forth then just treating them likely won't take care of the issue.
So, I'd try to really get to the bottom of your entire problem before spending money and time on something that might not work at all. . . . and I'll let others give their ideas for why you might be experiencing these issues.
At this present moment in time I am making cabinets for the kitchen - just in case you wanted to know what I'm doing when I'm not around.
