Why use Lime Mortar ?

Most properties built before 1930 have solid brickwork i.e. no cavity insulation, and must be re-pointed in Lime Mortar only.

Why cement/sand mix pointing should not be used in non-cavity brickwork :

⦁ it is non permeable and often causes premature damage to to the brick work resulting in internal damp issues
⦁ it is very solid once cured and results in a solid aggregate structure. Experience and knowledge has shown the mortar should be weaker than the bricks and is the sacrificial element in the structure as it is less costly than brickwork replacement.

Why Lime Mortar should be used :

⦁ Allows for movement and flexibilty in our changing weather
⦁ Is proven to allow moisture to travel freely between brickwork
⦁ Draws moisture from wet brickwork
⦁ In the last few decades empiricle testing has provided a scientific understanding of its remarkable abilities

Cement/ sand mix pointing can be used in properties built after 1930 with a cavity between internal and external walls

All our Lime Mortars comply with BSEN459
