LIME PLASTER WORK
Lime has been used in mortars,
plasters, renders and paints
for centuries. It was
continuously used in building
work from Roman times up
until the 20th Century.
Lime mortars, renders, plasters
and limewashes have many
properties that have
encouraged a healthy
resurgence in their use;
* they allow walls to 'breathe', moisture will
evaporate as rapidly as it enters (whereas most
modern mortars and paints hold moisture in the
wall).
* they are 'soft on the eye' and compliment the
beauty of other natural and traditional materials
* they are considered to be more
environmentally-friendly than conventional
materials

Frequently, the choice still seems to
be based on the availability, or lack
of availability, of skills, which means
that cement is often introduced into
buildings where it has no place, and
can - in the long term - cause damage
to the very fabric of the building.
