How do I fix a water damaged adobe wall?
The wall is part of my family Home I just inherited and now live in. The damage is from the roof spill over when it rains and has created holes underneath the chicken wire and the cement that was once on top of this is gone from the bottom half. I wish the people of the show from This Old House would help 😁. But, seriously, I don’t know what to do, can you give me some advice. Thank You,
Sincerely, Anna Lucero

Can you install gutters and downspouts to prevent further damage?
Be sure any underground pipes for drain water have adhesive cement in the joints. I had a crew do my whole house and then wondered why the basement suddenly flooded! The pipes had separated from water pressure and the water was running down under the piping to the foundation. Had to have the whole lot done again. Think $$$$. Have you graded the earth around the house so water runs off and away? These inspections should come first, before you tackle wall repairs.
Changes in the climate will make some places wetter than "normal" and you might need to call on an expert in your area to do an assessment first of all. Check with your local Agricultural Extension office for info and resources.
