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.
Icon
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.
Icon
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 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.

Testimonials

"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."

"Best Lime plaster system on the market!! I found this accidentally due to the coronavirus pandemic as stocks of everything ran out, and it's changed the way all of the plasterers in our area are now plastering conservation listed buildings as well as new builds... due to its unique formula and characteristics of extremely quick application, drying, workability and breathability. It's rare to find such a great product and more importantly a great level of customer service in the build industry."

Murray Smith

"As self-builders of a very large community project, Limecote has been an outstanding product, making all the difference to our progress. It keeps well in sealed bags even outside; it mixes easily and safely; being half the weight of sand-based products, it is easy to carry and apply to the walls; excellent adhesion mean that less is dropped and wasted... and not having to constantly limewash going forward make it a no-brainer."
