Sypathetically restoring listed buildings to their former glory
Using a traditional three-coat technique where possible or if the project allows, we specialise in sympathetically restoring listed buildings back to their former glory. Many plastering skills and techniques can be employed, including the use of horse or other animal hair, timber laths, Natural Hydraulic Lime and Non-hydraulic Lime where the project dictates.
Letting a building breathe with Lime Plaster
Lime Plaster allows your building to breathe. Being porous it allows moisture to be absorbed and released thereby eliminating trapped moisture which ultimately will damage the whole fabric of the building. It can also help to reduce the onslaught of mould growth by reducing surface condensation on walls and ceilings.
