What to use on external damp/wall? Render - if so mix with any additives?

    Hi All,

    To cut a long story short, the gully was cracked and we found out we had an issue when the kitchen was plastered and painted with a mist quote. I have now had the time to look into this further and today I spent some time breaking up the remainder gully area. This is shared between myself and the neighbour (whom is thankfully on a long holiday).

    Ignore the temp rainwater to soil pipe fix - that's just there so further water doesn't cause more issues.

    This is a follow on from an earlier thread if interested here are the links.

    Now I'm going to install a bottle gully and attach what I can directly to the gully, inc rainwater, and waste pipes for myself and the neighbours.

    The thing is @img 9194 had a load of mud inside with a brick by each side (fell out with some mud, not sure why mud was in it, but obviously a very poor job.

    I've now tried to clean up the area as much as I can by removing the mud from inside it and either side and the bricks are clearly wet.

    I obviously need to start looking at repairing and installing the new gully, there is no damp course material, so the what do I use to cover that entire area with cement? The other thing I was thinking was to soak the area in bitumen or some damp proof paint, but best to ask you experts for some sound advice! Many Thanks.
