Completion of rough cast render in Oxfordshire

We had previously completed work for our clients and were invited to return to carry out a new project for them. We applied two coats of lime, a rough cast render and limewash finish. We are really happy with the result, as were our clients.

Combatting damp in a traditional Cotswold property

We have completed work on the restoration of a traditional farmhouse in the historic Cotswold town of Cranham, Gloucestershire.

Our brief was to implement a tanking system, specified by the main contractor, to prevent damp from coming through the walls.

The tanking system included a membrane which was then coated in a plastering product called Limelite.

We were all really happy with the results and look forward to using the product again for any damp-critical restoration projects.

Restoration of chimney

We are very pleased with the outcome of the restoration of this lime chimney in Chipping Sodbury. The existing render had failed so we used two coats of lime render with a roughcast finish and three coats of lime wash to make the chimney good.

Restoration of internal walls

We have successfully completed the restoration of internal walls in this beautiful heritage building near Tetbury in Gloucestershire.

We took on the project after the existing plasterer had left. We made good the internal lime plasterwork using using JBLime High Impact Finishing Plaster.
