    Hi guys,
    I have recently bought a 1930s semi that is covered in a very course painted pebbledash.
    It is cracked in places and some bits near the bottom are coming away.
    My plan is to start removing the pebbledash and then rendering over smooth, I will then repaint.
    My question is, once I get back to the brick work what is the best course of action/products regarding rendering and finishing to ensure a good watertight job ready to be painted.

    Thanks,

    Paul.

    If i understand: you are going to hack off all existing pebbledash and rendering back to bare brick.
    You then propose to re-render with a smooth render and paint the new render.

    Are you proposing to do a DIY job?

    FWIW: there is masses of recent info on here about exactly what you propose - perhaps use the search button.
    Modern renders are often "Synthetics"that come with many colors- traditional renders can still be applied and masonry painted.
