What Is Roughcasting?

Roughcasting provides a durable coating to enhance your property’s exterior. It is a coating where small pebbles and gravel are mixed with the plaster or concrete and then applied to the walls on the exterior of the property.

It provides a rough surface that is also waterproof to protect your building. Roughcasting is similar to pebble dashing, but it’s more popular in Scotland.



Damp in properties can cause unwanted, costly damage. A waterproof barrier is essential to protect your property from water ingress and rising damp.
