Pointing & Render Repair
An example of a Devon stone rubble wall repair, lime putty mortar re-pointing and re-rendering.
The pointing was applied according to our Practical Repair Guide Sheet. The materials used were Unhaired Lime Mortar and were gauged with a pozzolan. Note how the mortar is applied so not to sit proud of the face of the stone. This is for aesthetics and practical reasons.
The render was applied according to our Practical Repair Guide sheet. Materials used were Unhaired Lime Mortar harl/scat coat, followed by a Haired Lime Mortar scratch coat and a final Unhaired Lime Mortar float coat with a sponged finish before decorating with a white Limewash.
This type of work can be undertaken with guidance by enthusiastic amateurs. We offer a Practical Lime Course and a DVD based on the course. We also provide advice over the telephone or by email email@example.com
