Lime Rendering


I have been repairing and conserving old renders since 1990, and through analysis, research and the experience of nearly 60 new roughcast renders I have been able to evolve my techniques so that my new renders have a gentle closed texture reminiscent of many historic renders.


I normally include vernacular features such as  trowelled in quoins at the corners and around windows.


I take into account the character and location of the building before making any choices of texture, colour, decorative details or even type of lime rather than being governed by a rigid dogma of using only one material or technique.
