How to achieve a scraped texture finish

weberpral M scrape texture finish on Essendon Lodge

Scraped texture is a hugely popular render finish which works well on both modern and traditional buildings. Our range of monocouche renders are made to be finished in either scraped or roughcast textures, and are algae-resistant and UV-resistant.

For applying onto masonry:

Monocouche is a through-coloured, one coat render which is suitable for application onto various types of masonry including brickwork, blockwork, and concrete.

Renders are not adhesives and therefore require a substrate with good suction and key to ensure good adhesion. If you are applying onto either of the following, further considerations apply:

  • Brickwork without recessed mortar joints
  • Concrete

In these circumstances, application of a stipple coat — also known as a key coat — such as weberend aid is required. Use our guide on rendering onto surfaces with poor key to learn how to do this. Once suitable key has been achieved, it is possible to apply a Monocouche render such as weberpral M (or weberpral D in Ireland) and finish with a scraped texture. Application tutorials can be found on the relevant product pages.

Colour charts

Monocouche renders are available in a range of popular colours from the ever-popular neutral shades such as Chalk, Silver Pearl and Beige, to our more colourful options such as Earth Red, Mushroom and Stone Grey.

weberpral M is available in England, Scotland and Wales and is available in 24 coloursweberpral D is available in 12 popular colours and is available in Ireland. Those listed to the right with an asterisk (*) are colours only available in weberpral M.

Things to consider

Our Monocouche renders are not suitable for application onto render board, instead consider the weberend MT system. If you are looking for a scrape textured finish to go onto insulation board, instead look at the webertherm XP system.

See how it's done

Once monocouche render has been applied, use a toothed scraper in a circular motion to achieve the desired scraped texture. Watch the video tutorial to see how it's done.

An extra layer of protection

Our monocouche renders are algae-resitant and UV-resistant, but for an extra layer of protection, consider applying weberend protect. This highly hydrophobic, colourless coating protects renders from water, oil and graffiti whilst maintaining the appearance of render and allowing it to breathe.
