Lime Plastering

Lime Plastering

Lime plastering was the traditional method of finishing walls and ceilings prior to decoration in the late 19th and early 20th century. In the second half of the 20th century lime plasters were for the most part replaced by premixed gypsum products which did not require the same level of skill in their preparation or application.

By the time of new millennium it had become apparent that in some situations these gypsum plasters were incompatible with traditional buildings which if slightly damp need to breath, and requiring a plastering system that can accommodate slight movement in the building.

For this reason many clients prefer to use lime plasters. Choice of material and mix are important if compatible systems are to be put in place to achieve the plastering finish and performance required. White Chapel Art Plaster have the necessary skills to advise and deliver this service with their experienced surveyors and craftspeople.
