I'm embarrassed to admit this, but I have just built a garden room covering the exterior with shuttering ply. I then applied, what I thought the rest of my house is covered in, an exterior type artex!!
I stippled it and it looked pretty good, I even painted it, it matched the rest of the house well, then........
It rained!icon_eek.gif
That's when I checked the bag and found it was actually normal artex (thought it was a bit smooth when I mixed it)

The water is just soaking through so it's got to come off, but what can I replace it with?
Is there an external covering that I can stipple and paint to match the rest of the house?

Please help, (remember it's the season of goodwill to all men - and idiots!)

could always just use normal artex and use a masonry paint to waterproof it..
sounds like a bodge but i used it patch a bit of my garden wall 3 years ago.. no probs.

There are a couple of high build paints around that are easy to get hold of...

Brollac makes one..or used to but a lot of their products are being phased out now...sandtex also make one which is very good.

Youl need a special roller to apply it and you'l probably have to prime the wall first.

Johnstones may also make one but im not sure..

Good luck....
