    We have a small dwarf wall that sits right next to the public pavement and what appears to be surface water is tracking in low level.

    The wall has been rendered but we haven't detailed the wall to pavement junction just yet.

    The pavement is slightly higher than the inside of the building floor in one section as the wall is built on a slight hill.

    Will a basic cement fillet suffice at the junction? Or would you use some kind of aco or French drain across the front? We have to take into account the pavement is council owned. Discing or breaking out the pavement may also disturb the dwarf wall.

    If you were to use a cement fillet, any tips? 4-1 mix with waterproofer perhaps? I've always known them to crack...

    Can we then paint it using masonry paint to match the wall?

    There is a set of French doors with the hardwood threshold sunk into the pavement to create a level access, we also need to take water away from this area so we thinking perhaps a slim aco right in front of this....

    Thoughts appreciated

    After all that, a car has only smashed into the front of the shop and taken out the walls and new windows!

    Should do, driver insured and so are we. Crime number etc provided

    Start from scratch again, at least we know the basic layout and it's all stripped out back to opening today

    Don't think time to use linseed oil paint again though now
