Hi I hope some can one can give me some advice.
My house, I'm afraid to say, has painted pebbledash in need of tidying up.
On one wall the painted pebbledash has lifted badly. So I have decided to
remove the pebbledash and render from this one wall and re-render leaving a
smooth finish. I have managed to remove the render from half the wall, but
now its got really hard going, the painted pebbledash for remaining section
seems to be well attached.
So my questions is can I skim the remaining pebbledash and render the rest,
if so how should I prepare the surface. The area where I have removed the
render is very sandy, will a coat of PVA be okay, then render and skim, or
should I put a coat to stabiliser on and the PVA or what?
Any advice will be appreciated, as I'm new to this.
