Lime Mortar

Lime mortar is used in traditional solid wall buildings to allow moisture to escape. Lime mortar is breathable and vapour permeable making it suitable for old buildings.

We can advise on suitable and compatible lime mortar using lime putty or natural hydraulic lime (NHL) for lime pointing and laying bricks, stone or flint.


Heritage Mortar / NHL

Lime mortar made with local sand to produce a pale yellow coloured mortar using Morestead 3mm sand and St Astier natural hydraulic lime. A dry powder which requires mixing with water on site.
