Conservation - Lime Render

Work Type: Conservation

Description: A perfect example of modern materials and techniques wrongly applied to an old building. Note how the 'plastic' paint on top of the cement render peels away like a skin. Moisture trapped within the wall will blister internal paintwork and react with modern plaster rather than being drawn out naturally through a breathable external lime render. The remedy, remove all cement render, apply a lime based render finished with a limewash.
