    Hi,

    Looking for a bit of advice regarding the gable end of my house.

    I'm looking to get it harled the same as the rest of the house (skye marble i think) but i am unsure if the stonework would need removed first or if there is a way of building up coats and harling on top of it or another method?

    The blocks are approx 4'' thick.

    Any advice welcome. Cheers.

    harling or pebble dash was used to hide rubbish brickwork or to weatherproof houses "originally" my advice would be to keep the stone it looks great

    I agree with our Steve, clean up the stonework, re-point and it'll look great.

    Thanks for replying. Is there a specific product yous would recommend for cleaning the stone work? I have tried pressure washing on some other similar stonework but it didn't make much difference.
    Cheers.
