Removing existing pebbledash can be hard work. 'Hacking off' the render with a chisel or machinery can have an added risk in damaging the existing brickwork, particularly as this was often used to conceal bad building works or cheaper facing brickwork.
As long as the pebble dash is in a good condition, and is not showing signs of cracking it is possible to render over the top if the necessary measures have been taken.
There are one of two ways that this can be carried out:
1) Appliance of a one coat dash cover system to the existing pebble dash followed by silicone render
2) Appliance of insulation boards followed by silicone render
