Identifying your building
If your property was originally built using lime products, then you should still be using these. Many buildings have had sand based cement products applied over the years, which has done them no favours. The majority of these buildings do not have damp courses or floor membranes and therefore now suffer from a build up of damp within the walls. If your building is built from cob or stone, lime based products are the best thing to use. If your building is classed as Heritage, then it is most likely that you should be using lime based products.
Lime products for new buildings
For those undertaking a new build or building extension or addition, you can also use lime based products – Parker SW Ltd often recommends using lime as a sympathetic way to integrate a building into it’s surrounding environment.
