Lime has been used as a material to plaster walls for many centuries, and it is an essential building material. Lime is an essential building material that will allow water to evaporate from the building instead of it being trapped in the building that can have a negative impact on the building itself.
Lime plastering is commonly used as a plastering method for historical and listed building. This is due to the long lasting nature and porous properties of lime which allows the walls to breathe. Failing to plaster older buildings with lime can have disastrous consequences for your building and can cause problems such as rising damp.
