Lime Plastering, Roughlee, Barrowford, Lancashire

This project involved Lime Plastering a Stone built 1790 Cottage in Roughlee Lancashire. Our Lime Plasterers completed the project in just 3 weeks. We used a Lime Putty based Lime Plaster on this project, with a minimum of 4 coats this was due to the random rubble Stonework.

Leveling coat of Lime Plaster We first applied a leveling coat of Lime Plaster to the Stonework this helps the Lime Plaster stop shrinking. This Lime Plaster is a Lime Putty based Lime Plaster.
