Roughcast is a coarse plaster surface applied to the exterior walls of a building. It is made up of a mixture containing lime, cement, sand, small gravel and often pebbles. Roughcasting is the most popular type of exterior render in Scotland because it is quick to apply, comes in a variety of colours and is cost effective.
Pebbledash is extremely similar to roughcast, and the two terms are often used interchangeably. However, they differ in the way they are applied. Pebbledash uses the same materials, but the pebbles are kept separate from the rest of the mixture. Once the mixture is freshly applied, the pebbles are thrown at the wet render. Roughcasting, on the other hand, is where the pebbles are mixed in with everything else and applied at the same time.
Fort Roofing Scotland provides expert pebbledash and roughcasting across the whole of Scotland. We have the essential skills and experience to apply your roughcasting to the highest quality. Although the finish is rough, the layering must be applied evenly and precisely to avoid cracking and lumps to form. We take pride in our work and guarantee you will be delighted with the results.

Health and safety is our first priority, so we are CSCS (Construction Skills Certification Scheme) card holders.
