Indeed. I assume bleach didn't work?

"like when you paint tiled front houses".   What kind of philistine does thatCrazyWink.   Like painting decent stock bricks.

Blackbarn, painting yellow stock bricks is a real bugbear of mine, why on Earth did people do it? It absolutely destroys the appearance of properties in my book. Angry

It's world cup time! Can you not just cover it 20 huge painted glossy St George Crosses and park a white van outside? Wink

For God's sake don't apply paint to pebbledash - all you're doing is sealing in the damp. The idea is that moisture should evaporate through the pebbledash; if you paint it over, the moisture won't be able to do that, so it'll just appear on the inside walls instead.

If you really must colour it, then use limewash, which is breathable.

Mind you, if it's modern pebbledash, and the base is cement rather than lime, the moisture will be sealed in anyway, so you'll have damp whether it's painted or not.
