Rendering services in Isle of Man
We specialise in high end rendering services throughout the areas of Isle of Man. In order for the walls to be able to breathe, you must control the damp that gets into them. To do this, your walls should be rendered on the outside and plastered and skimmed on the inside. This will allow the damp that gets into the walls to evaporate out so allowing the walls to breath and stay dry.
Lime Mortar Render
The inherent problems with a modern sand and cement render is that any cracks or weak points allows the ingress of water. The water then gets trapped in the wall because cement is impermeable and its harder setting is more susceptible to cracking.
Softer lime mortar moves with the building, reducing the likelihood of cracking. The paint systems for lime render and plaster should be breathable as well, so a silica based paint is preferable.
When it comes to any lime rendering or plastering services it is vital that a professional, competent in the use of such materials undertakes the work because if applied incorrectly it can cause more problems than it cures.
