Exterior bricks are turning white!
doglover · 12/08/2007 19:01
Recently noticed that a small patch of bricks on an exterior wall have a whitish 'bloom'. We had a water leak inside a couple of weeks ago - would this have resulted in the wall changing colour?! Our house is due to be surveyed in a fortnight and we're desperate to remedy this problem. Please help and offer any advice.

Dh is a builder.
He says it usually only happens in new houses, is yours new? [new being the first year/2years] He says if it hasn't been like that for years it doesn't usually just happen.
He said you won't get rid of it. Well, you might for a couple of weeks if you wash it with brick acid but it will come back again.
You could wash it with the acid before the survey is done.. he says it won't/doesn't do it any harm, just makes it bad looking.
He says a water leak might cause it but shouldn't really be the cause.
