Over time the wire will rust and possibly break it's difficult to say haw long this will last as I don't know how old the wire is and wot the condition is like but will cause the render to blow

There is a chance the wire Cable and bracket will rust over time and it's hard to tell because I don't know how old the wire is It's likely you will have an increase of rainwater where the rendering meets the bracket Which in the winter will then freeze and blow
