Lime Rendering in Harrogate Yorkshire

Lime Rendering Farmhouse by Builders in Harrogate Yorkshire

On this project in Harrogate Yorkshire we had to remove a cement based pointing from the stonework, then apply a 3 coat Lime Render to a Smooth Textured Finish.

This Period Farmhouse had the tell tale signs of internal Damp showing a Mould Growth. The property was also showing signs of Rising Damp. Our Team of Restoration Building Contractors took to applying the Lime Render.

 

Applying Lime Render to stone farmhouse

The first job was to remove all the cement based pointing mortar from the property. Our Builders did this by use small air powered tools, every care was taken not to damage the existing stone units.

Once all the cement pointing was remove, we cleaned down the walls with a high pressure hose. Any voids in the stonework were then filled and pack using Lime Mortar and specialist packing tools. All loose stone were removed and re-bedded, all decayed stone had to removed & replaced.

Our Building Contractor team then set to applying the first dubbing out coat of Lime Render. For this project we used a Hydraulic Lime Render & a locally sourced sand.

Here our Builder is applying the dubbing coat of Lime Render to the rear stone wall. The Lime Render is applied using a air powered Spray Gun, this ensures the Lime Render (sticks) to the stone units.

We used hessian sheets and tough water proof sheets to protect the Lime Render from the weather elements.

The new coats of Lime Render will allow the building to breathe, any moisture (damp) in the walls will now be able to escape through the Lime Render.
