We are aware that some properties are not suitable for the application of cement-based renders. It is very important that if they have been constructed using lime based mortars, a suitable lime based render must be used.
Lime renders also allow the building to “breathe” and are usually specified on renovation and restoration of period properties and listed buildings, coupled with traditional construction methods and specialist techniques, we can restore your building back to its original former glory. Eco-Rend has been involved in a number of historical building renovations where lime based renders where used to meet demands of local authority planning departments. We have a huge range of Lime products and substrate stabilisation base coats to choose from and all of them are suitable for heritage applications. The final appearance and finish is very similar to that of monocouche renders and also comes as through-coloured pre-mixed render for colour and texture consistency and speed of application.
A number of finishes and textures are available in the heritage lime renders section:
- Sponged and float smoothed
- Smooth spray textured
- Spray textured
- Trowel smoothed
Below are our projects where we have used lime renders.
