Lime mortar has been used with stone since Roman times for building in Scotland. Many of Scotland’s traditional buildings were constructed and finished using lime mortars, for bedding, pointing, harling and renders. Lime mortar remains the expert’s material of choice for repairs and maintenance to traditional stone buildings and this technical CPD will discuss the correct way to specify and apply it on conservation projects, along with debunking some myths and answering commonly asked questions on its use.
