How to Use Wooden Laths

Wooden laths: how should we use them, and should we even be using them at all? Laths were widely used until the mid 20th century, but they have now been largely replaced by modern solutions such as plasterboard. However, many owners of period properties will encounter laths when renovating or restoring. What are laths? In […]

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.

Testimonials

House icon

"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
House icon

"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."
