Will climbers damage a wall?

Noel O Neill asked 13 years ago

I would love to grow Virgina Creeper or Boston Ivy on my Garage wall, but I am reading on some web sites that they may damage the wall itself, seems this is more the case for Boston Ivy….Other sites then seem to contradict this.Have u experienced this..? thanks

Boston ivy or Virginia creeper will not damage a sound wall, but if there is loose plaster etc they can loosen it further.
