Lime has been used in buildings for thousands of years, since 12,00BC. These historic buildings should be repaired and maintained in a sympathetic manner using the correct materials to prolong the life of these properties for many years to come.
Lime products are vapour permeable, which allows your building to 'breathe', allowing water to enter the wall and more importantly allow the water to evaporate. Having your building 'breathe' will draw moisture from the internal environment to the outside making for a healthier environment by helping to control condensation and mould growth within the property. Lime mortars are also relatively flexible and will accommodate some movement in a wall. If lime cracks it can 'self-heal' when exposed to air, unlike cement with is a lot harder and brittle. The flexibility of lime will help to greatly reduce the damage to the surrounding materials.
