Our services include: Lime plastering; lime rendering; lime pointing; structural repairs; chimney repairs/rebuilding; roofing; roof repairs; gutter and fascia repairs; solving damp problems; limecrete floors and traditional paints & limewashes.
Structural repairs are normally caused by the rotting of lintels or beams due to wet or very old walls.
If you have any of the following issues your property may have structural problems and you should seek advice from an expert who specialises in old properties.
Many of these problems are due to timber rotting, which is caused by damp (water/water ingress). This weakens and softens the wood, allowing beetles to get into the wood and eat it, known as woodworm.
Lime Repair can not only fix all of the above issues, but also provide more appropriate structural and decorative solutions for your property. This will restore the balance and breathability of the building, which will avoid similar problems occurring in the future.
