Pebbledash Removal Walthamstow
Pebbledash was a practical construction solution during the times of war. All it took was a layer of cement and sand, and pebbles were simply thrown on this mortar. It was quick to build and was stronger than other building structures. It was more resistant to wear and tear and other shocks. However, post war era people acquired more taste and aesthetics. This has led to an increased demand for pebbledash removal as many people find it aesthetically unpleasing and difficult to maintain.
Pebbledash removal is not a simple job. It requires expertise and training to remove this feature from buildings. This is something you cannot do on your own.
There are some quick fixes to remove pebbledash. For example, you can hack it off. However, doing it on your own does not guarantee that you can do it properly. Removing pebbledash might sound like a piece of cake sorta job, but practically it is difficult as well as risky. A DIY approach can leave an uneven, rough and unsightly wall behind. It can also result in damaging the wall underneath and cause structural damage. This can result in invalidating your building insurance as well as making the walls unsafe. Because while removing the mortar which holds Pebbledash, you can also remove the layer underneath it- i-e the mortar which holds the bricks of your wall together.
Another way to remove pebbledash from buildings is to apply a specialist product over the top of the Pebbledash. This layer fills in the gaps between the pebbles, and results in a solid surface- having a thickness up to 50mm. You can apply new render on this surface and have a smooth and nice wall. However, even for doing this you need to consult a professional first because this procedure depends on the strength and fixture of the original Pebbledash on the wall. Without seeking advice of professional, you might do it wrongly and will have to peel off the whole layer of specialist product.
You can also install a board-wall or insulation, over the external side of Pebbledash masonry. This will act as an additional wall, which will seal the existing structure as well as help keep your building warm. This external wall can be further rendered as per your taste and choice. This is quite a practical way to turn pebbledash into something beneficial.
However, none of these solutions is permanent. You can get rid of pebbledash by seeking help of a professional company, or skilled tradesperson. Being experts they know the downsides and impacts of doing a specific procedure. Their advice and input can help you save energy and sources to remove pebbledash effectively.

“TW Brick Cleaning did a great job on my house frontage. They arrived on time, protected windows and door and got on with the job. The end result was amazing. One of the workers did arrive late on a couple of occasions, but he made up the time by working later into the evening. All in all a great job and I would highly recommend this company.
