Winter Working

General tips and guidelines: 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. Unfortunately the British climate and the programme driven modern building industry doesn’t allow for this and work sometimes has to be carried out at times of year and in conditions that are far less than ideal. No amount of well intentioned advise is as sensible as putting the work off until the weather poses less of a threat, this short guide is intended to help in situations where winter work is totally unavoidable.

Testimonials

Just wanted to say how fantastic your patchcoat product was to use. We have an 18th century farmhouse that we are renovating and after old skirting was removed, large patches of plaster and some brick surface came away. Put patchcoat on yesterday and it looks fantastic. So easy to mix and handle, was able to build up a broken corner by hand and mould to shape, yes still easy to put a skim coat on the shallower areas. Plus two litres of filler for £9.50 is incredible value. Will definitely be getting another tub of this as we move through the house, would use it over any other filler without hesitation. Thank you.

"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."
