Hi. I have a terraced house and pebble dashed external walls. I have cracks and breakages at the expansion joint between the houses on one side and tried sand/cement but it wouldn't stick and after a few months started coming off (knocked it off with the back of a paint brush).

Found some Mapai flexible external/internal tile adhesive in the shed and used that instead after putting SBR on the wall. Then pebble dashed it. Once dry I will paint it with 2x coats masonary paint.

Did I do good or will it fail soon? It was a dream to work with as opposed to the 4:1 sand/cement which didn't want to stick at all.

If not does anyone know a good ready made external filler to use for the smaller cracks?
