    Hi,

    I noticed some discolouration on the paintwork in my lounge. When I checked the wall from the outside I noticed a small crack in the pebbledash which seems to marry up to where the discolouration is inside.

    As a temporary fix, because I eventually plan to replace the pebbledash, what should I fill this small crack in with?

    Thanks in advance

    Do you have a cavity wall? If you do, there should be no link between cracks in the inner and outer skin. Unless something more sinister is going on...

    Use a cartridge gun to inject polyurethane into the crack - that should hold for a while if you force it in.
    Careful inspection will probably reveal more hairline cracks
