Lime Plastering & Rendering
Lime plaster is a natural breathable plaster used on older buildings built with a porous brick or stone. Allowing the walls to breath is very important in a older property and will prolong the life of any historic building keeping it damp free and warm.
Lime is a porous material which permits the walls in a building to breathe, allowing moisture to evaporate out rather than being trapped inside. The trapped moisture which can be caused by using incorrect materials - e g cement - will give rise to problems, notably damp and rot. Traditional lime plastering should always be used on older properties, and the use of gypsum plasters should be avoided.
