There are various forms of decay which commonly affect the fabric of old buildings. Most of these can be attributed in one way or another to the presence of trapped water and dampness. The pointing of masonry can be very vulnerable to water penetration particularly on south or west facing walls and it is essential that period and historic buildings are repaired and repointed with lime mortar. This simple solution can often solve many of the problems associated with trapped water and will invariably prevent more from developing.
Abode Renovation & Traditional Building Supplies can supply premixed lime putty based mortars made with a local heritage sand mix or an NHL blend mixed to your exact specification on site. We work closely with local Conservation Officers and Architects and can provide a complete service from start to completion.
