As with any painting project, the initial preparations and cleaning of the surface are very important to get a good finish which not only looks great but will last for years to come

Ben comments, “the pebbledash needs to be prepared properly by first making sure the surface is clean

A proprietary cleaner is applied to remove any dirt and grease. Then a wire brush is used on areas with moss, or algae or any loose flaky paint if the surface has been previously painted. The whole surface is then jet washed. Any defects in the surface are then repaired with additional pebbledash render and cracks are filled with suitable fillers

If the surface is chalky or powdery then stabilising primer is applied to seal the surface. The wall and fillers are left to dry for 24 hours prior to spraying. This ensures that the wall is ready and makes for the best possible paint adhesion and coverage.
