    Practical Lime Course

    I just want to say how excellent I thought the 'Practical Lime Course' was yesterday. I only booked the day before without really having thought through what I was expecting! I just felt it was about time I understood more about this subject, it having been a topic of discussion with friends over the past 7 years.

    Crowsnest Re-pointing

    Crowsnest Before 2015  Crowsnest After 2015

    Here are the 'before' and 'after' photos of a small section of the sandstone wall I am rebuilding with the mortar I have bought from you over the last three years!  This was the worst section and took me ages, it's not perfect but I am self-taught - the tips on your website were very helpful though.

    Breathable lime

    After extensively using lime putty products in the house, [a Grade 11 Listed Building] a damp survey was carried out by a reputable remedial treatments company. A damp meter was applied to the surface of the internal plaster and the chap just could not believe that a traditional solid wall could be so dry without tanking. The use of lime has allowed the walls to breathe and the moisture to evaporate away without resorting to modern materials.

    Our Specialist Building Team; Quality Products

    We have recently completed a project, Prezzo Exeter, using your white lime wash. What a great product - it covers almost as good as some masonry paints that we have used. In the past we've completed quite a few projects for English Heritage and properties in conservation areas where we have used lime wash and none has been as good as yours.

    We also understand that you supplied that the lime render and plaster and that your guys applied it as well? And what a great job they did, very smooth and even and very little cracking - it made our job very easy.

    Once again thanks for the great product and workmanship we will be using your products for any future projects we can.
