LIme mortar pointing services-Bristol

Lime mortar pointing is recommended in the restoration of stonework on traditional and period homes. Unlike cement, lime mortar is flexible and breathable and will allow the building to disperse moisture and move with the seasons. 

Repointing should be carried out if the mortar joints are loose, crumbling or have weathered back to such an extent that a ledge has formed, encouraging water ingress. Repointing with lime should also be considered when hard mortars such as cement are causing damage to the surrounding traditional stone or brick as this will progressively worsen over time.

We apply a sympathetic approach to each of our lime pointing projects, using hot mixed air lime mortars that provide a true like for like material that is compatible with historic masonry where hydraulic limes are not. This ensures that we preserve the history of a building or structure for generations to come. 

Being based within the historical city of Bristol within close proximity to Bath and the Cotswold's, we have experience lime pointing buildings and structures with local stone such as Bristol pennant sandstone and Bath & Cotswold limestone among others. We repoint a range of heritage buildings including houses, cottages, barns, churches, chapels and listed buildings.

If you would like to discuss your lime mortar pointing project with us, please do get in contact and we will be happy to assist you.

Stonewalling in Bristol; Take a look at a project we worked on in Cotham Park, Bristol. The original stone walls had completely collapsed due to groundworks on one side of the garden. We spent a great deal of time sifting through the stones and preparing them for building.

We rebuilt using the original stones and traditional Lime mortar and then pointed for a lovely finish. We are really happy with the result and it feels good to restore something to its original glory using the same materials.
