Lime Pointing St IvesPointing is the term given to the finish that is between the bricks or stone used to build your house. In many older buildings the mortar used to lay the stone or brick will be made from Lime.

The function of the mortar is to act as a bedding between the stones or bricks, but is also there to perform other functions:

  1. It must prevent water penetration through the joints, but it must allow the wall to breath and drain
  2. It must be flexible to allow the movement and settlement of the building

Lime pointing in Cornwall on historic buildings is a subtle yet long lasting Lime application. Our Lime Pointing applications in Cornwall are an excellent way to project the beauty of the stonework both internally and externally. It can be made to look as if it has been there for hundreds of years.

Here are examples of our external  and internal Lime Pointing:
