Roughcasting Experts in and around Glasgow for over thirty five years.

Across Glasgow, there are a significant number of bungalows, semi-detached and detached houses, apartments and modern flats that all have one thing in common.  They all feature a roughcasting exterior finish.

What is roughcasting?

Roughcasting is a type of finish that is used on the exterior of buildings and consists of small pebbles and gravel mixed among similar material as well as concrete which acts as the bonding agent. This roughcasting mixture is then used to coat the exterior walls of residential and commercial buildings across Glasgow.  When it has set, the finished roughcasting can then be painted as an additional visual finish.

Roughcasting should not be confused with pebble dashing.

While the basic ingredients for roughcasting may sound simple enough, as anyone who has tried to follow a specific recipe will understand, it takes time, patience and practice to achieve the right finish.

That is why when it comes to roughcasting you use a professional firm with a vast amount of experience in the field and understand the unique recipe that is required for strong and durable roughcasting on Glasgow buildings.

Is there a skill to roughcasting?

Roughcasting need to be applied to walls in an even finish with no area bulkier than others to prevent a rippled surface.
