Many companies will simply paint over the cracks by applying one coat of render to your existing roughcast, this is a bad idea because your roughcasting is only as strong as your base-coat. Poor foundations, guarantee it won’t last.
Lomond Improvements as an organization would never put our name to a project without the existing roughcast being tested, repaired, treated and built back up properly. This high standard of quality control ensures the longevity of your Roughcasting and allows Lomond to guarantee the project for your peace of mind.
According to research performed on the “Energy House” at the University of Salford, wind accounts for 5-8% heat loss due to the cooling of the exterior facade. Wind driven rain however increases the heating inefficiences as heat loss soars to 30%. The inefficiencies occur when the heat within the property is expeneded drying the external facade.
Measurable rainfall occurs in Scotland on over 250 days per year. By ensuring the exterior facade is water repellent, savings of up to 22% can be achieved on each of the rainfall days giving an average annual saving of 15%
Our Work Specs
We start off by doing a complete survey on the entire building to enable us to establish the correct measurements and specify your colour choice.
Any live fungus which is on the wall we spray that with a fungicidal sealer. Once this is applied we then use an acrylic stabiliser. We apply a sealant to the walls, called alumasc blue stabiliser. This will go to all walls which is sprayed on.
Our certified installers will roughcast all areas due to be done and take the roughcast tight into the windows to completely seal the job. On the day of roughcasting there will be a clean-up.
Once the job is being started we put protection on all windows and doors.
We start off by hammer testing all walls and boss areas hacked off. We then reinstate the areas, with a first coat then reinforcing mesh is put on the boss areas to stop them cracking.
We mechanically fix all powder coated corner beads and Bell casts beads.
Once the roughcast is completed we will bring an extra van that day and take all rubbish away and this eliminates the customer having a skip on site.
Once work has been completed and customer is happy the full settlement which is due must be paid 24hours after work being complete.

Their work is covered with a guarantee.
roughcasting I have just had my roughcasting done by Lomond and after some weather delays the actual roughcasting was completed in 1 day. I found the workmen very professional and polite, they completed their work quickly and efficiently. I found Natalie helpful and easy to contact. The roughcasting looks incredible ,Lomond also changed the leaking downpipe at front of house at no extra cost My only slight grumble is that despite contacting Lomond’s office my house number plate has not been put back up the wall. I would have no hesitation in recommending Lomond . Angela McMurray
We had our rough casting done by Lomond Improvements. After a few delays the roughcasting was completed within 2 days, the workmen were very polite and courteous and they cleaned up as they went ensuring our property was clean and tidy. Overall we were very pleased with the finished job, Natalie was also very helpful and kept us up to date and dealt with any concerns that we had. Only one small issue was that the finish round our cellar door was not as neat as we would have liked, Mark carried out a remedial fix of this and also carried out a final clear up after the scaffolding had been taken down. Would recommend Mark and his team if your looking for good quality roughcasting.
I have had my roof and roughcast complete with Lomond Improvements and I can not recommend this company enough. From the initial contact with their profession advisors right down to the final quality inspection everything was done to perfection, care and attention.
Everything is project managed and I had 1 point of contact throughout.
Lomond will be my number one recommendation going forward.
Had both roof and walls done with Lomond, very happy with the results both done to a high standard, excellent communication from both James(roof) and Marc(walls).
Cant question the quality what so ever, fab job

Lomond Improvements carried out an excellent rendering job on our house, the finish on the walls was excellent & the plastic beading on the wall corners & around window edges gives a excellent finish just takes the finish to a higher degree.
Thank you to Mark & his excellent team for a first class job.
