As part of the restoration process we always try to work closely with our clients to provide knowledge & understanding of the traditional materials & methods we use. As such we organised for some of our clients & local architects to visit St Oswalds Church whilst the harling coat was being applied.
Company Director Phil Braithwaite conducted a talk about Lime Mortar and the benefits of using it over modern materials, before giving a demonstration on the application process. Lime Harling is a rough textured finish often found on Churches & Castles. The coating provides a weather proof & decorative finish.
Dave Wiggins, Senior Engineer at Curtins also attended the site visit and will be giving a talk on the “functional performance of lime harling” at the building limes forum conference in Sterling Later this week.
