Pebbledash is the modern version of a house rendering process that dates from Roman times. So when did we start covering our homes with it, and is it beautiful or beastly?
Due to a lack of tradesmen within the construction industry during the postwar years pebbledash enjoyed a burst of popularity as a means of covering up shoddy workmanship and probably why some of the remaining eroded examples in our suburbs and council estates now look so forlorn and drab.
The modern variety is a mixture of sand, cement and pebbles applied to the exterior as an alternative to professional render, supposedly to protect from the vagaries of the great British climate.
A colourful solution appeared in the seventies called Canterbury spar known as grit in the trade but cheap, quick and easy to apply over the top of that dull mud coloured finish by semi-skilled operatives with a decidedly poor quality of adhesion this delivered all the right ingredients to provide damp problems and a very cold exterior wall plus a gravel finish to the foot path.
