Morning to all
Any suggestions for an effective product in the UK to help seal porous
old bricks in a terraced house 1904... I have done the Rentokill thing
for rising damp, now there's still the problem of the actual bricks. I
dont want to have any rendering etc, just something transparent that ca
be painted on.
Any suggestions or warnings or advice will be much appreciated.
Thompson's do a couple of well-know water sealing products:
Sometimes it can be the mortar bed joints and not necessarily the brick
itself. Do bear in mind also that an externally applied treatment is
not a permanent solution, and at some time you'll find yourself back out
there, re-applying a subsequent coat.
In the longer term, as you re-decorate each room you could look at doing
something more permanent on the inside, which (assuming you have a solid
brick wall) would also help to insulate the property.
