Lime Green turns 21

LG21: Ian Womersley from Womersley's Q&A

What has been the most important change in the market over the last 20+ years? 

By far the biggest shift has been the public’s understanding of the need to use breathable and lime-based products for the care and renovation of older buildings.  There’s also many more of these products on the market and online platforms have bought them into the mainstream. 

There’s something to suit everyone's needs. 


How long have you been working with Lime Green? 

Happy to say the whole 21 years.


What makes Lime Green products attractive to you and your clients? 

They do exactly what they say and product support on the Lime Green website is very good.


What type of projects are you using Lime Green Products on?     

DIY through to multimillion-pound projects.
