    What to consider before pebbling application.

    Hiring a contractor. This is the most important step you have to take. This is not an easy DIY project so you have to hire a specialist. Taking time to find the most qualified and capable team will make a difference in outcome and the quality of their work.

    Consider materials and finishes. Not all materials are equal in terms of quality. So, make sure the team you hire only uses the best material finishes and guarantees the work they perform when they are going to do this type of detail work on your home.

    Consider the clean up, removal, preparing the property and all aspects which go into this type of service. Make sure your quote includes these costs as well as all labour costs so you don’t have any surprises once the project is completed.

    Make sure you ask all questions before starting any work and make sure you understand all guarantees and warranties so you aren’t stuck with lackluster work and paying the full price for something which you are not happy with.

    Doing it Yourself

    No, this is not a simple project. Nor is it the type of job you can do over a long weekend. It is a job which you should hire a contractor to perform. Homeowners should not attempt a DIY project when it pertains to pebbling or doing any work with siding, the roof or exterior surfaces of the home. They are complex in nature and they are difficult to complete.

    Hiring a contractor

    • Choose companies specialising in siding/improvement work.
    • Find out what materials they use, to ensure quality finishes.
    • Learn about the technique used when pebbling the home.
    • Inquire about guarantees and warranties for services.


    How much will this work cost?
    On the lower end, for a single-storey home, you should expect to pay a minimum of £2000-2500. So, budget accordingly when the time comes to hire a local contractor.
    How long will it take to pebble the home?
    Set aside a minimum of 3-7 days for a single-storey home. Make sure you inquire about setbacks or possible complications, in the event something does go wrong when the contractors are working, so you know how long these setbacks typically last.
    Can I do this myself?
    No, it is very difficult work to complete. It also requires use of commercial grade equipment and supplies. Most homeowners simply do not have the skill, knowledge or time to do a job of this magnitude on their own.
