At Best of Lime, we provide products that are sourced especially for listed buildings, but are equally at home on new builds to achieve a stunning, breathable and environmentally friendly lime render finish. Our products are developed under the strict rule that they must be the best of what is available. This might not mean the cheapest, but we are continuously listening to and evaluating feedback from specifiers and contractors as to how certain materials perform, both on site and long term.
Our lime plasters, manufactured by us on site in rural East Anglia, are sustainable, environmentally friendly building materials, which tick all the requisite conservation and green-boxes. They are breathable, low-carbon materials suitable for eco-build, Listed and Historic properties, new-builds and anyone interested in reducing the overall carbon impact of their building project.
We haven’t found anything yet that they won’t stick to. This includes bricks, blocks, wooden and metal lath, straw bale, plasterboard, wood fibre, wood-wool, old plaster, clay blocks, daub, clay lump, cob and any stone including flint!
No need for prolonged mixing times or banking material up days or weeks in advance of a job to get a lime render finish. Simply put the water in the tub, add the fibres, stir briefly then add Limecote or Warmcote and whisk to the required consistency. There is no right or wrong water addition, both plasters can be used wet enough to go through a spray or thick enough to be hand placed like modelling clay.
Both products have zero shrinkage, so can be used to dub out to practically any depth. Our lime plasters can be put on easily in multiple 25mm coats.
No more having to remain on site or make costly journeys back to site to ‘tend to’ or spray your plaster. Once you’ve achieved the finish you are happy with, that’s it, Limecote and Warmcote will set without shrinkage.
"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."
