Traditional lime pointing on this 1850's house in Chester

Project Details

This is a NHL 3.5 Lafarge, this lime has a good free lime content of 44%. The mix ratio is 1 lime 3 sharp brown borras sand, 35% which is a perfect ratio for lime to sand. Choose your NHL lime carefully! It's imperative to ensure we preserve the bricks whilst retaining the original look.

You can watch a video on youtube of the process including the owner of the property getting involved with the restoration herself. It's a good understanding of the care involved with the preservation of these older properties. (opens a new window)
