Lime rendering

Lime rendering is frequently required over that of cement render in listed buildings by  “environment and planning“. Lime render is a time-tested technique, that immediately gives the property a warm aged feel. Unlike cement render, lime render is breathable allowing the movement of vapour between the joints, reducing the chance of frost damage on the brick work.

We are experienced with lime render, aswell as cement render, and plastering.
