Lime plastering Helston

Lime pointing, rendering and plastering in Cornwall

This one of our most recent projects in Helston. The customer had recently purchased this property which was suffering from damp problems due to the walls being covered in cement. Here are some pictures of the internal lime putty plastering and the external lime rendering ‘we also like icing cakes’…

After doing such a great job of the external rendering and internal plastering, the customer asked us to remove the old cement render from the gable side that was causing serious damp problems… more photos to follow as the job progresses

As progress moves on here are some pictures of the second coat (scratch coat).

This is applied with a steel trowel and then floated with a wooden float to give a key for the final coat.

Here is the 3rd and final coat. Now it will cure ready to be painted.
