The company has been working with lime based products for over 30 years, we are a small family company with the capacity to fulfil all projects, large and small, with a real passion for lime and its benefits to our historic future. Our principles are firmly based on doing an outstanding job which is true to the building, and one to be proud of.

Specialising in the restoration and preservation of historic plaster finishes using traditional Lime plastering techniques, we can undertake repairs on a whole building or just patch as necessary.

Internally, skills include re-lathing and plastering ceilings and partitions, three coat work on brick, stone or lath or wattle and daub, plus lime washing.

Externally, re-rendering, re-pointing and patching in lime mortars are a speciality, plus a full lime washing service is available.

Our team are experienced in providing a decorating service specific to our plaster-work, emphasising the importance of using the latest, high quality materials, advising you on the best paints and lime washes for an expert finished touch. We have a proven track record in the use of modern materials whereby recent projects demonstrate the ability to achieve sharp, clean lines.

Straw Bale Houses

We helped Brian Waite, founder and designer of this Straw Bale House to complete his dream.

He says "I designed this low energy, low carbon, affordable strawbalehouse primarily to reduce my own energy bills in retirement but it is obvious that we all will need to reduce our energy consumption so it is now available as an easy build “kit” for self-builders" Visit his site for more information.

Lime Pointing

Dotheboyes Hall

We finished re-pointing this lovely home early 2017, and yet to start the re-pointing of the tower. A lovely job done! Image below illustrates the beautiful qualities and finish that Lime can produce when applied and treated correctly!
