There are people who specialise in pebble dashing around, but quite often Torquay plasterers will be willing to do this type of work for you. Pebble dashing (or pebbledashing) is a kind of exterior wall covering typically consisting of two layers of a base coat made from sand and lime into which small gravel, pebbles or shells are pressed to create a tough, attractive and maintenance free finish on both new and renovated homes.

Dry Lining Torquay: Many plasterers in Torquay also provide dry lining services, which will be required in a lot of improvement projects around the home. Dry lining is the process where plasterboard is fixed to a metal framework, a brickwork surface or a wood studding to form a wall surface that doesn't have to be plastered. Whilst you can decorate the plasterboard finish as it is, normally most people like to have the plasterboard skimmed with a thin layer of plaster afterwards to give it a harder and smoother finish. As for fittings, when fixing to a brickwork wall "dot and dab" adhesive is used, when fixing plasterboard to wooden joists or studding, drywall screws or nails are used and when fixing to a metal framework self-drilling, self tapping (Jack-Point screws) are used.
