Hi guys, moved into a end of terrace two bed house last year and after sorting out the inside decor am making a start on the outside of the property. The house has a concrete/rendered plinth running around the bottom all the way round and is painted black at the front and back. The plinth is starting to crumble off of the wall at the front an is exposing the brick behind it (see pictures). It has also swollen out in places an sounds hollow if you tap it.

Is this something that is repairable? Or is it something that even needs repairing? (I.e could I knock it all off and be left with the brick underneath) what would your suggestions be. I'm thinking about having the front of the house clad so could this just be covered up with cladding?
