Pebbledashing is a decorative gravel finish applied to a render coat on buildings. It helps to retain wall insulation, cover up blockwork and give a stunning finish as part or full cover to a building. According to Grand Designs presenter, Kevin McCloud, pebbledashing is a finish for which "a revival is long overdue".

Pebbledashing is popular with both architects and builders due to its ability to protect the external walls of buildings from adverse weather. Not only that, but its long-lasting appearance extends the life of the building. Other benefits include:
Decorative and visually pleasing
Adds value to a property
Long lasting and cost effective
Protects from harsh conditions
Maintenance free finish
Other names often used to describe the process of pebbledashing are dry-dashing, harling and roughcasting.
Pebble dash colours and styles
Over the years, our choice of aggregates has grown into a fantastic colourful range - far removed from the traditional pebbledashing. This means you can use this product to create interesting, unique designs and finishes that are always a talking point.
The 3-8mm Rosa Champagne pebble dashing aggregate looks best on a white render. Its blend of brown and lilac colours, plus polar white marble, gives a strong speckled bold dash finish.
The 3-8mm Polar White is a traditional, very popular pebbledashing aggregate. Its marble is imported from Spain and it is mainly white featuring beautiful specks of cream that add a slight contrast. The Polar White has a sparkly, clean finish.
How To Do Pebble Dashing
How do you prepare your background for pebble dashing? The background needs to be reasonably dry, with no frost. A temperature of +5°C or above at the time of rendering is ideal, but the manufacturer’s guidelines should be followed.
The whole background area that will be rendered needs to be tested. Backgrounds to be rendered should be examined for:
Dust and contamination should be removed prior to rendering. The line and flatness of the background also needs to be assessed; determine if dubbing out is needed or if the render can be applied to a uniform thickness.
Examine all surfaces carefully to determine what if any preparation is needed. Find out more here.
