Pebble Dash Removal

Pebbledash is now considered a dated building material throughout the UK. It was primarily invented to provide an inexpensive, low maintenance wall covering that also provided some protection from weathering. It was also an inexpensive option to cover damaged brickwork. Post the 1st World War the UK was faced with a shortage of skilled tradesmen and building supplies. Pebbles were much easier to source and pebbledash finish was easier to apply and did not require highly skilled tradesmen.

Pebbledash should last a minimum of 20 years but during this time and after, it may deteriorate in areas and need repair. Pebbledash deterioration means, pebbles beginning to fall away and beyond the pebbles the underlying mortar may start to crumble. As well as looking dated, the property now looks unattractive with areas of crumbling pebbledash. Not to overlook the fact that the deteriorating pebbledash and mortar may be letting in moisture and leaving the property exposed to cracks and internal damage.

It is important to hire a professional pebbledash removal company, as skill and expertise are required to execute it well and without causing further damage.
