Help with choosing the right lime mortars, lime render or lime plaster for project
Lime mortars and renders are increasingly being used in new construction; many of the benefits appreciated in historic buildings are just as important for new build too.
Our range of lime products are ideal for conservation projects both large and small. Naturally flexible, they will accommodate minor building movements without the cracking and weakening that would occur with cement-based mortars.
