LIME RENDER

PROJECT SUITABILITY:

New build, Heritage, Renovation, External wall Insulation

MAIN FEATURES:

  • High vapour permeability – allows building to breath, essential for old buildings built with lime mortar.
  • Flexibility – lime is a ‘flexible’ building material. It allows for building movement.
  • Better for the environment than cement-based products as it uses less energy to produce and re absorbs CO2 during the setting process, making it close to carbon neutral.
