    Default Cracked render and bubbling paint

    Hi Guys

    I have the following issues with some brick piers in my carport and wanted some advice on how to fix this.
    The piers look like they are made of brick, have concrete render and then the paint looks like it has some sort of texture in it.

    I have the following issues:
    1. Paint is peeling and cracking on corners and the concrete render underneath does not hold the shape of the corner anymore. Its almost like the concrete render is powdery in these locations;
    2. The paint is is bubbling and cracking and there's some salts coming though the paint;
    3. In some locations the render is actually cracked as well with maybe 0.5mm cracks and the render is lower in this area than the smooth face. I have tried to paint but the crack just shows through.
    4. If I take back the lose paint with a scraper, there is a distict edge on the paint and you will see that when I paint it.


    Can someone tell me the basic steps to repair this or point me to a good YouTube video. Thanks

    First have a piece of the texture coat tested for asbestos.

    Best bet then is remove all the texture coat by either scraping or sanding/grinding (by asbestos removal people if it is containing asbestos)

    Then repair the render if necessary

    Then sealer coat and one coat acrylic exterior or texture coat,

    or 2 coats acrylic.

    Most work is in the removal /repair

    Thanks Cyclic, The asbestos is a bit of a worry as I'm sure whoever did the work did it less than 5 years ago.

    Thanks for the list.
