    Hi all,

    I have taken the skirtings off a late 60s/early 70s building and in some areas there was damage caused by the nails as seen in the picture. I am filling these with a rapid set cement based mortar.

    The question I have is that there is a smooth, rubbery feeling black coating that roughly extends up the wall 2" which I assume to be a liquid damp proofing.

    Would the Black Jack DPM by Everbuild be the correct product to paint over my patched holes?

    Is there something more suitable you could recomend? I have no building experience so am unaware of the products in this area.

    Thank you for any help or wisdom you may be able to share!
    Chris
