I live in a 30s semi with solid brick walls, which are pebbledashed and painted, There is some water penetration. To overcome this, I need to know my options, please.
Do I Repaint the existing surface; Strip the pebbledash and replace with smooth screed or wallcoating; etc?

you could try a waterproofer first if you dont want to re-coat

Thomsons water seal is not as good as this stuff, hence why its much more expensive.

Assuming it is water penetration caused by porous walls? Check guttering, DPC etc

Thank you, Notch1
I'll look into that. The existing pebbledash looks well past its prime so for cosmetic reasons as well as damp-proofing, I will still need to re-coat either with masonry paint or go the whole hog and replace the pebbledash with a resin finish.

photos of the damp and the outside of the wall will show a lot more.
