Today, there’s a deep interest in ‘green building', as well as a growing preference among many people for more individualistic properties. So, more and more home-owners, self-builders and renovators are looking at lime-based products as an alternative to standard cement-based equivalents.
So, tradespeople are increasingly likely to be asked to undertake building work involving lime mortars, lime renders, and lime plasters. Because they aren’t familiar with using lime-based products, some contractors pass up the opportunity for this kind of work.
"There’s no need to worry. Lime Green’s products:
- Are easy-to-use and very forgiving
- Have a good workability
- Leave you with a superior finish people will love"
Just take a look at our videos. You’ll see that Lime Green developed green building materials and products that bring the beauty and benefits of lime, but are easy to use.
What's more, Lime Green can be a cost-effective alternative to standard cement-based products. It’s not just for one-off builds and traditional renovation projects. For larger contemporary developments, we offer a range of functional products that look great.
Take a look at Warmshell insulation
It’s not just mortars, plasters and renders.
Another consequence of the emphasis on green building materials is the interest in alternative forms of insulation. This led us to develop Warmshell, which uses a combination of woodfibre insulating panels and lime render to bring greater thermal efficiency to standard timber frame construction - cost-effectively and with an even faster build time.
Although originally designed for new builds, Warmshell can also be retro-fitted to older properties quickly and economically, to add warmth and reduce energy bills.
