Painting Pebbledash Options
Pebbledash isn’t the most straight forward surface to paint. The heavily textured nature of the render means painting it using traditional methods (brush & roller) can be considerably more challenging than painting a smoother surface. The same is also true of painting other rough surfaces such as Spar Dash, Roughcast and Tyrolean.
When using a brush to apply paint to pebbledash a dabbing or stippling motion will probably be required to ensure all the nooks and crannies receive a covering of the paint. If using a roller, a “long pile” roller will be essential to ensuring the textured surface gets a good and even covering of paint. If the walls of the property to be painted are particularly high, scaffolding may be required as the dabbing/stippling motion required would be quite difficult and potentially dangerous when several feet above the ground on a ladder.
If using these methods to paint pebbledash it is likely that some areas of the pebbledash will receive a thick layer of paint while some other hard to reach areas between the stones will receive a very light covering. Several coats may therefore be required to achieve an even application of paint.
