Why do you need to use Lime Plaster?
Lime mortar, lime plasters and lime renders are a natural, breathable coating utilised in old properties made with a porous brick, or with timber framed panels. The panels were often in-filled with wattle and daub, and lime render was put on as the exterior finish coat, with lime plaster used inside.
Lime plastering is generally based in the restoration of the older structures which recently there’s been resurgence throughout the UK. We ourselves as a business have also carried out several restoration projects using the more traditional lime plaster to grade one and grade two listed buildings all over the UK.
