Roughcasting is protective exterior coating, which can also be referred to as pebble dash or render. It is seen as the first line of protection against the elements.
The traditional methods of roughcast are sand and cement mixture which is mixed in a cement mixer, and applied by hand using 2 layers.
The first coat is known as a scratch coat which once applied to the wall is scratched with a to leave lines on the surface. The second coat is then applied.
