Homeshield Roughcast FAQ
Here are some of our frequently asked questions by our customers.
Roughcasting is also known as pebble or wet dashing. It’s a technique used as a finish to residential buildings. Alongside its aesthetic appeal, it has a range of benefits that we’ve listed above, making it a popular and economic solution to property protection.
Roughcasting material is made by mixing cement-based renders alongside smaller aggregate materials like small stones, gravel and pebbles.
In general, roughcasting can take from a range of a few days to a couple of weeks to fully dry and cure, and should be left alone during that entire time. Drying times can be affected by the weather changing too much, which ultimately shouldn’t be a giant concern in Scotland. However, constant rain could also slow down the process. Nonetheless, our specialist installers will be able to give professional consultation on how to mitigate these effects.
The simple answer is yes. However, make sure not to begin painting until 4-6 weeks has passed, otherwise, you may damage the work done on your house.
A couple of things to bear in mind:
- Ensure that the surface of your roughcast is clean and free of dirt, dust, algae and mould. For older roughcast surfaces, you may need to order an inspection to be done to see if any repairs need to be made.
- Use a primer designed for masonry surfaces, as this will help the paint adhere better to the roughcast and give a more even finish to the wall. Drying time differs, so ensure you consult the manufacturer’s instructions.
- Apply paint using a brush, roller or spray. You may need multiple coats to get the desired results.
Yes, you can. However, it’s recommended not to go for the default method of application if you’re intent on doing so. Timber is a construction material that is highly flexible, and it expands/contracts depending on changes in moisture and temperature. This will cause the roughcasting to crack.
There are three methods that we recommend if you’ve got your heart set on roughcasting timber:
- Cladding – Installing a layer of exterior-grade cladding can give the roughcast protection against the timber frame’s movements.
- Timer-compatible Render – This means that you’ll have a type of roughcast that will respond accordingly to the movement of timber, reducing the risk of cracking and delamination.
Breathable renders – Breathable renders will allow you to improve thermal performance as well as having a render that is compatible with a roughcast finish, as these systems help manage moisture and prevent condensation.
