Plastering and Rendering


Lime Mortar Pointing

Lime Mortar PointingLime putty mortars and natural hydraulic limes (NHL) offer advantages over cement based mortars. They are generally a softer, more porous material allowing moisture to evaporate from the joints in preference to the stone. This will help to lower moisture levels in the wall and reduce the build-up of soluble salts in the stone face. As with all lime putty based materials the best outcome requires patience and careful control of drying and suction, the reward being a good looking and long lasting mortar.

 

Limewashing on new lime renders or lime plasters

Limewash is the preferred finish on traditional buildings as it allows the structure to "breathe", allowing any damp present to evaporate away rather than be trapped in the wall. It has a matt finish and helps consolidate and improve the surface of both old and new lime plaster, physically and visually. We supply a range of colours as well as white. Because limewashes are porous paints they shade in depth of colour to reflect the dampness of the background material.
