    Hi there, Iv done a lot of plastering and small rendering before but am new to pebble dashing..

    My old man has asked me to to a few patch repairs to the pebble dash around his house ( the largest being about 1m2), which looks seems simple enough after reading a few other posts, so thanks to those who replied!

    My question is - down one side there is a fine verticle crack (no bigger than 5mm width) in the pebbledash about 2-3metres in length, now iv tapped the render and it dose not sound hollow, it seems fairly sound/solid. Should i still knock away the surrounding areas and repair or can the crack just be filled some way or another..

    Cheers for your help.
