Lime mortar work in Kent & East Sussex
LIME MORTAR
Lime mortars are common in older buildings without cavities because the mortars have a structure which readily allows water and water vapour to escape from the wall instead of building up and causing problems. Any water within the mortar would expand when frozen in wintry conditions, causing cracking, deterioration and loss of weatherproofing.
Repointing with lime mortar is usually necessary where the original lime mortar in a wall has deteriorated over time as a result of natural weathering or poor maintenance. It is also required where a cement mortar or other inappropriate mortar has been used to repoint the wall. In these cases the cement mortar must be completely removed and replaced with the correct lime mortar.
Modern cavity walls do not need the same ‘breathability’ and so can safely use cement mortars.
