Following the removal of existing renders from Historic Buildings in Cornwall we, Leslie Cornell Building Restoration Ltd, assess whether the stone or brickwork is in a suitable condition to leave exposed.

Where appropriate, we encourage leaving the stone/brickwork exposed and re-pointed using a Natural Lime/sand mortar.

Re-pointing with Lime is a long-lasting application that enhances the beauty of the stone/brickwork, whilst allowing the building to breath. Breathability is an integral part of the longevity of the stone/brick and will assist in the limitation of damp.

Our Lime pointing in Cornwall applications can be appropriately colour matched to the building substrate by using a variety of appropriate sands when preparing the Lime mortar.

If the stone/brickwork is found to be in a non-suitable condition, we would then suggest other Lime applications such as:
