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

"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!!"

Geoff Morland

"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."
