Hi,

I have some external render which I think is allowing water to penetrate. As I am at the end of a row the wall gets the full brunt of the rain when it falls.

The render looks in very good condition, don't notice any blisters/cracking, or any other signs of problems.

Just to make sure, I want to give the render a once over with a water proofing agent, unfortunately having trouble locating a suitable one.

The render is currently painted.

Any suggestions?

Would this product help:

Want to add some protection over winter, next year I will take the render off and see what horrors lay beneath and put in a more permanent solution.

The paint should be providing moisture protection.

That's exactly what I would have thought!

Is it possible its coloured render which has never been painted/protected?

It's possible, I have seen coloured render applied. not sure of the waterproofness of it though. Do a simple test, throw some water on your wall, does it run off or soak in?
