Lime Pointing, Lime plastering and rendering, Lath and plaster
All of our lime is supplied by www.heritagecobandlime.com we have found the quality of their lime exceptional, and as we prefer to use traditional lime putty rather than an nhl lime we have found the perfect partner. We offer a traditional internal lime plastering service using a scat coat, haired coat, float coat with a lime putty plastered finishing coat. We can also carry out lath and plaster repairs to existing ceiling structures or complete new lath and plaster ceilings.
We also offer external lime rendering and lime washing, most of the time when we offer this service it’s usually after removing a hard cement render that has cracked and is allowing penetrating damp to enter the building fabric.
