Roughcasting - Glasgow

A common sight on homes and all kinds of properties across the country, roughcasting is also known as pebbledash.

What is roughcasting?

A roughcast finish on a property is a coarse mix of plaster with small gravel or pebbles. Some older style roughcasting also contains cement and lime, with pebbles and shells as a top layer. Popular from the start of the 20th century, pebbles and shells were actually dredged from local sea beds, especially during building boom times!

What does roughcasting offer a property?

There are many reasons why people opt for roughcasting;

  • It offers some level of weather protection for the exterior of a property, protecting otherwise vulnerable brick work etc.
  • Many people like the finish that roughcasting gives the exterior of a property too

Is the roughcasting looking worn? Are parts of it beginning to come away from the exterior wall?

Roughcasting will not last forever. Battered by wind and rain, baking sun in the summer months and icy cold temperatures in the depth of winter, parts of the pebble dash can begin to wear away. When a hole appears, the damp creeps underneath the roughcasting and, what started as a small patch, now begins to crumble away in ever increasing amounts.

This can lead to the exterior of your property beginning to look unkempt. A.T.T. Builders, Glasgow can provide you with a no obligation quote to remove the old rough casting, replacing with new. Or, like other homeowners, repair small patches as a ‘make do’ measure.
