    Hello

    I have damp in a bedroom wall with an external chimney breast behind it. A friend suggested it could be coming in through the chimney crown. Took a look & it seems solid but looks damp.

    I want to seal it with a coat of something but what?

    Thanks

    Hehehe, very witty :LOL:

    Was looking in the garage & found a tin of Thompsons roof seal, does concrete the lot.
    It's black but who'll see it up there :eek:

    Probably similar to what you're talking a bout and it's uv resistant & breathable.
