Traditional lime putty is getting increasingly more used in the rendering and plastering industry. This is due to the durability, reliability and strength of the material. Here at JC Plastering and Lime, we choose to use traditional lime putty methods in our rendering services. The lime putty mixture allows the structure of a building to breathe properly, while also absorbing all moisture – resulting in the decline of dampness problems in the property. Lime putty is softer than cement mortars, which makes it more flexible to work with, along with the fact that it takes longer to dry – helping us have a more flexible working environment, to accommodate to every specific need you may have.

JC Plastering & Rendering Attention To Detail

For every lime putty rendering job, the preparation of surfaces and materials is vital. When carrying out any rendering, the surface must be thoroughly cleaned and free of all dust and debris. This allows for all of the lime putty to be applied to the surface easily and with ease. Also, lime rendering is very temperamental and requires care during the application, which is why, we at JC Plastering and Lime, take the best amount of care when preparing and applying lime for all of our rendering jobs. Thus, allowing all of the work done to be of the highest standard.

Here at JC Plastering and Lime, we also take the best care when dealing with the common problems when it comes to lime putty rendering.

Shrinkage – This is a common problem when using lime putty in rendering services. We help prevent this by making sure all surfaces have the proper dampness and moisture. This helps to avoid any moisture being drawn out of the render coat and into the substrate. Here at JC Plastering and Lime, we are very vigilant when it comes to this, as we also ensure that we don’t ‘over-wet’ any surfaces, by using specialist water sprays.  

Drying too quickly – Lime renders should never be allowed to dry too quickly, as it can cause many problems to the rendering job. Therefore, we make sure that there is sufficient time and space for the lime putty to dry slowly. Also by doing this, we are able to adjust any markings as the job goes on.
