So why should we continue to use lime plaster?
Lime plaster is a traditional material that has been used for hundreds and hundreds of years. It is important to remember that lime plastering is as relevant today as it was in years past. Lime plaster has many many benefits. Some of these benefits are that it can be very lightweight (this is when we use chalk as the aggregate, rather than sand) it's flexible and more resistant to cracking than other materials. Another benefit is that it's "breathable" which means it is vapour permeable, which is of the utmost importance, especially with timber framed properties.
So if you are in Suffolk, Norfolk, Cambridgeshire or Essex, look no further than Ben Barber Carpentry & Restoration for your lime plaster needs. Based between Bury St Edmunds and Diss, we cover East Anglia for all lime plaster requirements.
