Lime Wash

About Lime Wash

For many thousands of years Limewash has been in use on historic and listed buildings as well as more recent buildings that do not have a damp proof course. Walls that do not have a damp proof course (DPC) will absorb moisture from the ground, this moisture will rise up the walls and if a non-breathable coating is applied to the exterior wall this moisture is then trapped and its only means of escape is inwards creating damp patches on interior walls. If a non microporous paint is applied to the interior wall then there is no where for this moisture to go it will then push the paint coating off the walls. It will also be absorbed by any timber in the wall causing it to rot.
