Pebble Dashing

Pebble dash is a form of rendering where pea shingle or stone chippings are thrown onto sand and cement base. Roughcast is crushed stone mixed with cement and applied to walls. Arts & Crafts or Tudorbethan style homes used pebble dashing as a design feature. External walls were red brick at the lower end and pebble dashed above. The wall surface was often left unpainted. Pebble dashing obtained a poor image after it was over used in post war housing. Due to the lack of skilled bricklayers after the Second World War pebble dashing was bought back as a way of covering up poor brickwork, especially on council estates. However, pebble dashing has became a way of fashion.

    What is Platering?

    Plaster is a building material used for coating walls and ceilings. Plaster starts as a dry powder similar to mortar or cement and like those materials it is mixed with water to form a paste which liberates heat and then hardens. Unlike mortar and cement, plaster remains quite soft after setting, and can be easily manipulated with metal tools or even sandpaper. These characteristics make plaster suitable for a finishing, rather than a load-bearing material.
