Lime render to 1880's home

"Our cement based rendering had failed and was cracked and falling away in places.  This started to cause real damp problems in the house as water penetrated, resulting in mildew and black mold.  After many hours of research on the internet I discovered that cement rendering was not suitable for our 1883 terraced house.  My research brought me to EcoVert Solutions who specialise in older houses.


After contacting EcoVert solutions, a meeting was arranged and Tim attended my property.  He surveyed the house and offered advice which was both comprehensive and informative. His recommendation was to remove the failing cement render and re-apply using a lime render which is a natural breathable material perfectly suited to a house built in the 19th century.


While carrying out the job everyone working on the house was friendly and courteous; always on time and very reliable.  I was given a defined schedule and I was updated if it ever needed to be changed due to weather or other minor issues.  Nothing was too much trouble and the site was kept very tidy.


Once the scaffolding had been removed I was able to appreciate the quality of the workmanship.  The external walls and fixtures of our house now look pristine and the humidity inside has dropped from an unhealthy 60%-70% to a comfortable 40%-50%.  In summary I have found TIm and EcoVert Solutions professional, trustworthy and I would highly recommend them."
