Pebble Dash Rendering

Pebble Dash Rendering

Pebble Dash Rendering FAQs

Pebble dash rendering first started to appear extensively in the 1930s, when it was recognised as a cost-effective way to cover poor brickwork. Prior to that it was popular as a weather coating on coastal buildings, reaching right back to the medieval period, and it was also used as a stylish finish for stately homes.

Fast forward to the 21st century and pebble dash rendering gets much the same response as Marmite; you either love it or you hate it. The pebble dash finish is created by throwing pebbles at external plaster. These are pressed into the render and provide a naturally coloured, rough textured surface.

Plastering, Dry Lining and Coving in Ampthill

Plastering, Dry Lining and Coving in Ampthill

A recent report carried out for The Telegraph placed Ampthill first in its ranking of small and medium-sized UK towns to live in. It’s not hard to see why! This lovely market town with its landmark water pump at the centre is always busy and feels prosperous. It’s had part to play in history too. St Katherine’s Cross in Ampthill Park marks the site of the castle where Henry VIII housed his first wife whilst trying to secure his divorce from her.

Ampthill has been an important trading centre for centuries, and this is evident in the historic mix of buildings that make up the town. Much of the town centre was remodelled in the 1780s, but there are also Victorian villas, early 20th century terraces and new builds in the mix. Over the years the Logic Plastering team has had the opportunity to work on some fascinating buildings, from a range of periods, across the town.

Plastering and Coving Services in Biddenham

Biddenham is one of Bedfordshire’s best kept secrets. Just two miles from Bedford town centre, this tiny village nestles on the banks of the River Ouse. It’s one of the smallest of the Bedfordshire villages and has managed to protect its identity, despite the ongoing encroachment of new builds nearby.

The history of Biddenham goes back to Roman times, and it ‘feels’ like a proper village, with a village pond (originally created for the catching of carp) and a Green which forms the centre of village life. It’s a treat to for the Logic Plastering team to step out of 21st century Bedford and into something much older. And we relish the opportunity of working on cottages, some of which date back to the 1700s.
