Lime is a natural material that has been used on buildings for centuries. It is the ideal render on buildings made of natural materials such as hempcrete, straw bales, and earth, because it allows the walls to breath.
Lime is resilient to water so can be used as a render in external and internal areas including wet areas such as bathrooms.
It is more environmentally friendly than cement render because it takes less energy to produce and actually absorbs carbon dioxide as it sets.
Lime plasters range from coarse renders such as the Lime Plaster to fine decorative plasters such as Marrakesh and Venetian. The coarse lime renders can be applied by a capable DIY but the finer polished plasters require specialised training to apply correctly.
We can recommend trained Artisans in your area to apply the decorative lime plaster finishes.
