Encyclopedia

From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

Lime render is a lime-based cementitious mix applied to the external surfaces of traditionally-built stone buildings. It allows the building to 'breathe' - as lime is porous, it allows for the collection and evaporation of moisture. Essentially it is something like Gore-Tex for stone built buildings. Cement in contrast, an often applied render for stone buildings, traps moisture behind the stonework, which may result in the erosion of the stone masonry.
