Pebble dashing is a cost effective means of covering unsightly brickwork or breeze blocks and can be used to add a sense of character that is often associated with period properties.
By the nature of its textured appearance and natural rustic charm Capital Plastering Ireland consider that pebble dash can transform the look of a building drastically.
The term ‘pebble dash’ is used to describe this external rendered finish because smooth pebbles or jagged spa are thrown or “dashed” onto a topcoat of render so that they stick to it before it dries and provide a weathering surface. Some pebble dash renders are referred to as ‘spa’ which consists of jagged chippings that are then embedded into and adhere to the render better, which tends to last longer.
As part of Capital Plastering Ireland pebble dashing service at we can offer our clients a choice of stone and spa coatings.
You can choose a spa stone, which are often used for their particular natural colours and textures, or alternatively you may wish to opt for ordinary stones and simply paint over them for a more subtle uniform effect.
