Why are you thinking you cant hypo it? Surely the cracks wont be harmed by hypo? The rain would get in the cracks so what problem do you foresee?

I WILL WRITE THIS IN ENGLISH THEN 

 

🤔

 

THERE ARE SLIGHT HOLES  IN THE RENDER  NOT ALL OVER BUT JUST IN PLACES.

ABOVE THE CONNY I CANT TELL IF  THE RENDER HAS HOLES IN IT  WOULD YOU TREAT IT WITH A 1 TO 4 SOFTWASH MIX AND GENTLY RINSE OR JUST BIOCIDE IT

From the pictures it doesn’t look like you will rub the pebbles off ??? I would be tempted to spray it with a couple of good coats leave for 45 muinits then rinse off with a garden hose , see what it comes up like , but from the pictures it looks more like carbonatious dirt not biological???

I think I would advise to paint it with masonry paint and give them a quote.

Needs cleaning first especially if algi growth on it as it will feed on the paint and come through it

You only need a tower and move it around as you go. That's the reason I bought my Boss AGR Tower. It cost 4 grand but it has paid for itself in 6 months.

how do you paint over the conservatory elevation or do you just stand on the tower with a long pole and roller to get to the wall above the conny

I paid £500 for a pair of ladder staging brackets. So I place a ladder and bracket on one end and a tower on the other and slide a 6m youngman board across. last year I had to buy a 7.2 metre board to fix lead above a conservatory, its still at the house because the customer paid for it. He has a 12 metre long conservatory with a beam halfway across, which I can rest the board on.
