How much does this cost? Has anyone had it removed in north east London and would recommend someone?

Not in. North East London but neighbours nearby did this. Cost around 3k for small mid terrace front only. This included scaffolding and re-pointing.

£14k for end of terrace (end bit is about 3 'fronts'!) - includes chimney as well -SE London - chose company via checkatrade

Our next door neighbours did this. It was very noisy, annoying and messy. Apologise to your neighbours in advance and mail I suggest it's done in Winter when the windows can stay closed!

£14k seriously?! Yours does sound like a large surface area though. £3k-5k for the front only of a small terrace sounds commensurate with what we’ve been quoted.

Hey yes I know @sellotape (just a bit over) but was the equivalent of 5 walls in all (so actually just less than £3k for the front wall alone iyswim!) plus they did a little bit of roof work - including the chimney. Looks much better than pebbledash!

I'm currently having mine re pebbledashed. The old pebbledash (4 layers) was taken off yesterday. Because of the bad weather, I've had a day of owning a lovely yellow brick house. The 'experts' tell me it's not financially viable to restore the bricks. Although I know they're right I'm kind of hoping they do a midnight flit and don't return tomorrow. I've gone for a whiter pebbledash in the hope it looks better than the awful Canterbury spar. The whole jobs costing £1300 in East London/Essex.

Have you investigated about having it rendered?

@goingtotown - was just about to say the same thing. We had our house sand blasted - it wasn't pebbledashed but it was painted in gloss type non breathable paint (on a house circa 1450's.. shock) which went green/black underneath. It looked grim. They obviously painted it cheaply just to sell it and 3-4 years in it was a green slimy mess. Foul. Anyhow, that aside, we had all the crap removed and same as you, underneath the bricks were not good enough for repointing - also because it's such an old house with many extensions the bricks were all different colours. We lime rendered and re painted with a specialist paint and it looks beautiful now.

We’ve just been quoted between £6-6.5k for removal of pebble dash and replaced with render, which includes scaffolding. That’s for an extended semi on all walls except the front.
