The Advantages of Lime Plaster

By choosing top-tier lime plastering for your building project, you unlock a myriad of benefits that go beyond aesthetics. Here are some of the key advantages:

- Breathable Material: Lime plaster is renowned for its breathable nature, acting as a moisture regulator within your property. It absorbs and releases moisture, ensuring a stable and comfortable indoor environment.

- Mould and Fungi Resistance: The elevated pH levels of lime plaster deter the growth of mould and fungi, providing a healthy and hygienic living space.

- Time-Tested Durability: Lime plaster stands the test of time, with the potential to last for thousands of years thanks to its remarkable hardness. Your investment in lime plaster is an investment in the future.

- Versatility: Lime plaster is water-resistant, making it suitable for both interior and exterior applications. It remains robust against the elements, ensuring longevity and resilience.

- Eco-Friendly Choice: Lime plaster boasts an environmentally friendly profile. Its manufacturing process produces less embodied carbon compared to cement, and the material itself reabsorbs carbon dioxide, contributing to a greener world.

- Modern and Timeless: Due to its enduring appeal and environmental consciousness, lime plaster remains the preferred choice for both contemporary construction and the restoration of historical treasures.

At R J Dean, we invite you to discover the timeless allure and enduring benefits of lime plaster. Let us be your partners in preserving Suffolk's heritage while embracing a more sustainable and beautiful future.
