Additional Services

In addition to our stone & building restoration skills we are also able to offer a first class service on the following:

Plastering

Plastering consists of 2-3 coats starting with a base coat. Then if needed a 2nd coat which is levelled ready for a top smooth coat to be applied.

Whether you are redecorating or renovating your home it is important to have smooth walls and ceilings. The top coat plaster gives you a smooth surface to decorate. To achieve this you will need the skills of an experienced plasterer. This is vital if you are having a painted finish. Upon inspection of your walls we can advise and recommend what is required for your property.

DG Building Restoration have been perfecting this art for 20 years and have many happy clients.

Pebble Dashing

Pebble dashing is an external render finish where smooth pebble or jagged spa (stones) are dashed on to a top coat of render before it dries to provide a weathering surface.

DG Building restoration offer our clients a wide choice of stone and spa coatings which come in various colours and textures. We can match most existing dash where repairs are needed.

Pebble dashing process

  • Scratch coat
    This is the base coat that bonds to the existing brickwork or surface & provides a smooth surface for the top coat to be applied
  • Top coat
    The top coat is an even waterproof layer of finer sand and cement which enables the stones to stick and be embedded
  • Pebble dashing
    Before the top coat dries the stones are then applied

Rendering

Exterior rendering is where an exterior plaster coat is applied to the fa├žade/external walls of a building. It consists of a sand and cement mixture which provide protective waterproof coat to the building. Rendering can also cover up any damaged brickwork or surfaces.

Rendering process

  • Scratch coat
    This is the base coat that bonds to the existing brickwork or surface provides a smooth surface for the top coat to be applied
