    Hi all,

    Any advice on which paint to use? I have pebble dash walls that needs to be painted as parts of the paint is now flaking off.

    Do I need the Smooth paint or Textured paint? And do I need to buy some kind of stabilizer before I start painting?

    Ideally this is what I am after, but Dulux only do this in a smooth finish.

    Thanks for taking time to read this post.

    Pebble dash is already a textured finish, just go for the smooth.

    Stabilizer should be used if the surface is friable or flaking

    I could not agree more with Bosswhite, yet it is time proven that a textured masonry paint affords far more stability and weather resistance than the smooth.
