Game changing lime plaster products
At Best of Lime, it is our ambition to produce lime materials that not only compete with established names on project cost, site friendly use and workability, but are a generation ahead on the new bottom line of low carbon, low embodied energy and sustainability.
Our unique understanding of historic plasters and mortars is combined with the drive to develop products that satisfy not only the rigorous requirements of materials used on some of the country's most treasured buildings, but also to provide products that are low-carbon, sustainable, no-nonsense, user-friendly and unlike any others on the market.

Lime Plaster Bags
We have three driving passions.
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.
Our lime plasters are sustainable and environmentally friendly. They are breathable and low-carbon, suitable for eco-build, listed and historic properties.
Not only do our traditional lime renders look beautiful, they also allow moisture to transfer as vapour through the building's fabric, improving living conditions.

Why use lime?

Lime is the natural choice
Lime allows the free transport of moisture vapour through the fabric of the building. 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, and the unique finished beauty all make Best of Lime products the natural choice for listed and historic buildings, sustainable new-builds, or environmentally conscious homeowners.

Practical benefits of lime

Traditional lime plaster
Simply put water in a tub, then add Limecote, Warmcote, or Rendercote, whisk to the required consistency, then add the fibres.
Our products have zero shrinkage, so they can be used to dub out to practically any depth. Our lime plasters can be put on easily in multiple 25mm coats. Once you have achieved the finish you are happy with, that's it.

"Thanks,, I'm fully converted now 👍 won't be using lime putty for a while that's for sure, much better finish compared to what I've been using for the past 8 years or so, and peace of mind that it doesn't crack, lighter, less mess, no binding in needed.

I was also pleasantly surprised about how far it goes per bag 👍 definitely a game changer for me, will be back next week sometime for some more."

"Used their product Patchcote on my timber framed house for some repairs.

Really easy to mix, apply and finish.

Left-over product was just as pliable 3 days later, it can be left sealed inside the container supplied, after mixing, for up to a year!

Best product I’ve worked with!!"

"Limecote and Warmcote are ideal products for use on timber framed buildings and low strength substrates with their excellent flexibility, bond, and light weight compared to sanded plasters. Being dry bagged makes it easy to transport and store, with the added advantage of being able to adjust the mix to suit thin or very thick coats without compromising the product, or the quality of the finished work."
