Repairs and replacement of cracked pebbledash in Brighton

front of brighton house completed

“Oh I do like to be beside the seaside!…” as the song goes, and we really did love working on this charming house in Brighton, Sussex.

Extensive cracked and hollow pebbledash was replaced and then protected with a NEVER PAINT AGAIN textured exterior coating, in Polar White.

This nice house was near the sea, in an exposed area, catching the rain driven wind that whips up from the English channel.

Time had also taken it’s toll on the building and the house was covered with badly cracked pebbledash, some so bad, it was more or less falling off the wall.

A run down of the work we did to this Brighton property.

The gable end (side) was probably the worst area, but as the owner had a new extension built out the back, (see photos) there was a fair bit of new blockwork too, all of this needed to be matched in so the owners would end up with a house with a uniform exterior wall surface.

They chose NPA textured masonry coatings, available of course from us at NEVER PAINT AGAIN UK who specialise in applying super durable Exterior wall coatings in and around Brighton and Hove, having worked in the city since the late 1980’s.

The pebbledash was in very poor condition.

As you can see from the photo below, we certainly had our work cut out for us, so that’s what we did, we cut out the crack, and hacked off the very loose pebbledash.

One thing that stood out about the service we offered was the fact that in normal cases, the owner would have to find a builder in Brighton, as well a a painter in the town, and maybe even a damp proofing specialist in Brighton, and then co-ordinate all the work.

Never paint Again gives a complete service from our list of tradespeople, so we take care of the lot, including project management one each job and you don’t have to spend YOUR valuable time searching for different tradespeople.

repairing bad render

Old Pebbledash removed and the first coat of render

As you can see, the walls, once we had taken the old pebbledash off, were not in such a good state as the owner thought.

We did all the rendering, and then hand applied a tyrolean finish, to match the texture of the previous pebbledash.

Once this had dried, we then applied a sand and cement slurry render, known as “Bagging” and then allowed to dry.

Applying textured masonry wall coatings.

Then all the house was masked up, and we laid dust sheets down on the drive and the garden.

We hand applied primer to the walls, and the spray applied the top coat, a thick and durable paint-like coating, which once applied will not fade, crack, chip or peel for at least 15 years, guaranteed.

So we turned this sad looking Sussex property…

What an amazing job, even if I say so myself!

All credit goes to the hard working contractors who did this and they certainly had to work hard to carry out all the repairs to the house.
