Hello and Welcome To The James Allan Harling and Roughcasting Website.
We have been in the harling and roughcasting business in Edinburgh and the Lothians for over 20 years now. Our first class team of tradesmen will absolutely make sure that dealing with us is a great experience start to finish.
We can help you with all types of wall coverings including cement renders in all colours, harling with all types and colours of decorative chips, wet-dash render, stone effect render in all sorts of colours and stone size and shapes.
We can carry out all manner of repairs to harling and render repair. Perhaps you have a harled building which is generally OK but has the odd loose bit here and there. Our team of Edinburgh earlier and roughcasting experts will remove the defective render and replace the old with new as required, saving money on a full re-harling job.
We can also carry out lime harling and lime rendering, mainly on old traditional buildings. The lime allows the underlying brick or masonry to breathe properly as well as allowing for a more flexible mortar that can stand freeze/thaw cycles and movement much better than cement mortars.
So, what can we render, roughcast or harl?
Pretty much any brick, stone or concrete surfaces or structures can be coated if enough attention is paid to the preparation of the surfaces. We can carry out harling work to houses, garages, chimneys, extensions, gables, walls, conservatories, commercial buildings etc., etc.
HOW DO I GET A QUOTE AND ADVICE?
Simply give us a call or email, or simply fill in one of the contact forms on the website. Once you do that we will arrange a time convenient to yourself to discuss options and scale of works etc. Very shortly afterwards you shall receive your free quotation and report outlining the scope of the job.
DO I HAVE A SAY IN HOW MY BUILDING WILL LOOK?
Yes of course. If you are say, going to re-harl your wall, we will show you a good selection of decorative chips you can choose from. You can then choose a background colour of your choice. Pretty much every shade you can imagine is available. We can of course advise you if you are unsure. If there is a precedent on your property for a certain type or colour of render / harling we will normally try to copy this, but ultimately it is up to you.
IF I WANT TO GO AHEAD, HOW SOON COULD I HAVE MY JOB DONE?
A typical lead time for us is 3 to 4 weeks from the date of your acceptance of our quote. Nobody gets to you quicker than us. If your need is urgent call us first and we will see what we can do to get you in quicker
