Traditional Plastering

Traditional lime based plastering


Natural lime has been used as a binder in mortars, renders and plasters from as early as 5000BC up right up until the 19th century when Ordinary Portland Cement was introduced.


There are benefits of using natural lime on older property walls which are traditionally covered with a lime-based plaster allowing stone and brick walls to breathe and flex whilst providing insulation from cold and damp. The process involves numerous layers of lime plaster which takes longer to dry out until the optimum thickness and durability is achieved. Being considerably more labour intensive than modern plastering methods traditional lime can prove to be an expensive option.


We are always happy to discuss the differences and suitability of traditional lime plastering versus a more modern technique explaining the way we can bridge the gap between old and new plastering methods.

A modern alternative

Limelite plaster


Mike Schranz uses Tarmac's Limelite which is a blend of cement, lime and a lightweight mineral aggregate, which dries out quickly and naturally, provides good insulating qualities and a traditional finish.

Limelite is an excellent modern alternative to the traditional lime based plaster which tends to be more labour intensive and takes longer to complete.


Limelite is ideal for:

  • Renovation projects
  • Listed buildings
  • Heritage properties
  • Barn conversions

Limelite works with the fabric of a building - letting walls breathe and provides a high quality, durable finish which will protect your property without having to worry about recurring damp and mould.

Domestic properties

We undertake work in occupied homes and organise everything from start to finish - from removal of worn and damaged internal plasterwork and weather damaged external render.


Our quotes include supplying of scaffolding, removals of all waste, and provision of new and warrantied work. Our team of plasterers are conscious that families and home owners need clean, careful and tidy workmanship, especially when working around finished pathways, drives and gardens.


Our quotes are priced per square meter - not day rates which can be subject to change. This ensures our clients, whether domestic or commercial can budget accurately.
