    I have bought a house that has pebbledash and would like to know if it can be rendered over directly. If not, what would be the best way to achieve a nice rendered finish?.

    if your pebbledash is loose, coming off (test with a lump hammer if it feels loose) best off hacking it off .

    If solid,go over it, a basecoat and finish coat will give you a good flat sound finish

    The latest trend is to turn dashing back to bricks using lime based finish like Decopierre or Blue FLag Base coat, then 2 coats 1st is the pointing color, 2nd the brick and then grooved out. Youtube it.
