    My front garden brick wall has suffered some spalling over this last harsh winter. Correct me if I'm wrong, but I thought the best way to stop this from continuing was to use a breathable silicone water repellent so that any moisture in the bricks can escape but no more can get in.

    My question is, what product should I buy? I've been looking around online but am struggling to find one that fits the bill - any suggestions are appreciated!

    Thanks,
    Rob.

    I'm not a big fan of sealing brickwork, but use a siloxane one if you have to,as this is breathable.

    poor pointing can contribute to spalling
