What is roughcasting and how does it work?

Roughcasting is a process of applying a thin layer of mortar to the surface of masonry walls and other building surfaces. The purpose of roughcasting is to improve the appearance and weatherproofing of the surface, and to provide a key for further decoration or rendering.

If you’re looking to roughcast your property, you’ll need to find a roughcasting contractor who can provide the service. Once you’ve found a reputable contractor, they will prepare the surface by cleaning it and repairing any damage.

They will then apply a basecoat of roughcasting mortar, which is usually made from sand, cement, and lime. Once this has dried, they will apply a topcoat, which is usually made from cement and sand. The topcoat is then textured to create the rough finish.

Roughcasting can be applied to both exterior and interior surfaces, and can be used on a variety of different materials, including brick, stone, concrete, and render. It’s a popular choice for those looking to improve the appearance of their property, as it can create a unique finish that is both stylish and practical.

If you’re thinking of roughcasting your property, make sure to find a reputable contractor who can provide a high-quality service. roughcasting can transform the look of your property.

How long will roughcasting last?

Roughcasting can last for many years if properly maintained. The mortar will eventually wear down, but it can be easily reapplied to keep the surface looking good. roughcasting can also be used to cover up imperfections in masonry walls, providing a smooth surface that can be painted or decorated as desired.

Roughcasting is a popular choice for exterior walls in the Scotland, and can give any home a fresh, new look.

What problem are you trying to solve?

I’ve got cracked tiles on my roof, what should I do?2022-07-15T08:39:30+00:00

Yes, it can happen often, unfortunately. We highly recommend you get them replaced though as this will prevent further damage to the roof structure.
Your first instance should be to call a roofing company such as King Roofing, so that they may survey your roof and recommend the correct course of action.

I want to jet wash my roof, should I?2022-07-15T07:53:05+00:00

We would not recommend it at all. We see roofs being damaged far too often because of how strong the jet is.
King Roofing can clean your roof and gutters so please ask us about this service.

If you discover the wood is rotten can it be replaced?2022-07-15T07:48:15+00:00

Treatment of rot is a fairly simple process, however, if the timber is damaged and needs replaced this is something we can certainly do.

How long will my roof last?2022-07-15T07:36:55+00:00

We find most well-built roofs can last for approx. 20 years. It all depends on the materials used, for example, Slate tiles are known to last longer.
Of course, many factors dictate the length of time a roof maintains its integrity, such as the weather, which materials were used, how well they were installed initially and how well they have been maintained over the years. This is why you should always discuss the warranty of the manufacturers’ products.

Can I fix my own roof?2022-07-15T07:28:42+00:00

We would strongly advise against it. Not only could it be incredibly dangerous for you resulting in inury, but you could also damage your roof further.

If my roof is leaking would I need a new roof?2022-07-15T07:22:49+00:00

Generally not, we often complete roof repair service for our clients. Water can gain access from sections that have come loose or damaged by weather etc. There are occasions when the roof was installed poorly, this can cause the entire structure to be dangerous and would need to be replaced.

If you are repairing my roof would I need to leave?2022-07-14T21:49:24+00:00

It doesn’t happen often but there are occasions where it would be best to leave the property for a period of time, usually due to the elements and or safety.

I have a slated roof, how long would it take to re-slate it?2022-07-14T21:45:56+00:00

Well from our experience it’s not possible to give you an exact time line, if we look at a semi-detached property then we could say something like that could take up to 3 weeks to do the roof.
