Lime Rendering


GVS Building Solutions can advise on the best render for your building. Taking into account the age of the building, the type of building, the cost and the state of repair of your existing walls.

Traditional lime and modern cement render have very different characteristics. Cement render can cause damage to period properties, due to its rigidity. If you have a building that pre-dates 1800 the original external render used is likely to have been lime, which has been reinforced with animal hair. Lime render allows flexibility, absorbing water and allows moisture to evaporate gradually, this allows a building to “breathe”.

GVS Building Solutions have many years experience in applying lime and horse hair render to period properties and we are happy to provide advice on the best method to enhance and restore your property.
