BUILDING MATERIALS

Welcome to Best of Lime Ltd, World leading innovators in lime plasters, renders and plastering products.

At Best of Lime Ltd, we have three Driving Passions:

The Conservation of our Built Heritage

Our lime plasters are based on medieval plaster recipes. We can calculate their success because similar lime renders that were used in medieval times still exist today.

Heritage

Environmental Sustainability

Our lime plasters are sustainable and environmentally-friendly. They are breathable and low-carbon, suitable for eco-build, listed and historic properties.

Aesthetic
Beauty

Not only do our traditional lime renders look beautiful, they also allow moisture to transfer, as vapor, through the buildings fabric, improving living conditions.

Lime allows the free transport of moisture vapour through the fabric of the building (breathability).

This halts decay, reduces the unpleasant accumulation of condensation and damp and improves the air quality making your home or workplace a more energy efficient, healthy, pleasant place to live and work.

The re-absorption of Carbon Dioxide by lime plaster, the lower embodied energy in the manufacture, the unique finished beauty, all make Best of Lime Ltd products the natural choice for listed and historic buildings, sustainable new-build or anyone that cares about their environment and wants to do things differently.

In an ideal world, working with lime mortars and renders would take place in conditions not too hot, too cold, too wet or too dry.
