Lime Rendering

I carry out repairs to existing lime render or the complete lime rendering of a wall. Quite often this involves removing cement render that has caused internal damp problems.

This house in South Derbyshire had been rendered with sand and cement; the render had cracked in a number of places on two elevations allowing water into the walls and subsequent internal damp problems. The cement render was to be knocked off and replaced with a two-coat lime render which would then be white lime washed.

On the picture above the cement render is being removed and replaced with lime render.

The first coat of lime render has been finished on one elevation.

The second coat of lime render started.

Above and below - rendering completed and the walls freshly painted with white lime wash which is still drying.
