Case Studies

The weather plays a very large part in our lives; not only do we have several long term forecasts but we listen to the weather daily on radio four just before one o'clock. This is all to plan our work decisions, as limework is affected by temperature, wind, sun and rain. Weather seems to affect whole years too; 2009 was a mixture of lime re-pointing and repairs to chalk cob walls whereas, after the harsh winter of 2009/10, we spent most of 2010 re-building fallen chalk cob walls. This carried forward into 2011 where there were a large number of cob cottages to be re-rendered.

If we can help you with your repair project, do get in touch. Here are some of the projects we have been involved with recently.
