Edinburgh Stone Repairs & Masonry specialise in the application of various types of lime plaster and lime mortar to historic, heritage and conservation buildings across Edinburgh and Central Scotland. The approach taken by us is both simple and effective. We use traditional methods combined with a knowledge of suitable modern materials. So whether that means matching the lime mortar of the building to replace it ‘like for like’ or ascertaining what the best eco materials available are that can do the building the justice it deserves.
Our lime plastering services include the standard three coat approach of aggregate, lime putty and hair, as well as more modern lime plastering approaches such as hemp plaster (which is a lime putty product) and Glaster (an hydraulic lime and re-cycled glass mix). To protect the exterior of your property we offer a lime rendering service, and lime pointing, both of which can then be finished with a limewash.
Whilst our internal lime plastering products all use lime putty as the binding agent, our external lime render utilises a natural hydraulic lime to offer suitable protection against the elements. Lime render can be finished in a manner of styles, to match the style of the building or the specifications of an architect.
We strive to offer the best lime plastering service available, whether it be sourcing the best quality lime plastering materials, the most suitable products for the buildings requirements, communicating with you throughout the work process, or simply being punctual.
