LIME RE POINTING & LIME RENDERING

Many older properties were built without a damp proof course. They were

constructed in such a way that allows moisture to both enter and leave the materials

the opposite of modern construction techniques and materials that are sealed against moisture. Older properties are unable to breathe they can suffer from damp problems causing mould, fungi, dry and wet rot.

Most pre- 1930 buildings were built with lime and should therefore ideally be pointed

with lime , cement pointing is very hard and because of its lack of flexibility it will crack

over time when used in old properties , as the walls move and try to breathe

Once cement pointing cracks it allows water to get into the structure of the building 

without letting it escape again or evaporate this leads to damp problems

We have plenty of experience in removing cement pointing and replacing with lime

It is a job that must be done with great care ,so the other building materials such as

brick or stone are not damaged.
