Why Choose Limecrete?

Photos from another project in Norfolk.

Why was a limecrete floor chosen here?  Limecrete is breathable. Water vapour can escape through limecrete. If a building has a waterproof floor, ie concrete, then any water vapour would tend to travel underneath and across to, then up the walls, causing damp areas on walls and often damage.  Using a base of recycled glass before the limecrete avoids the issue of moisture wicking up.

Limecrete is widely specified by architects to protect old buildings. It is also used more and more in modern homes due to its breathability, eco friendly nature and the fact that it can be recycled at the end of its life.  It can be combined with underfloor heating.

Please call to discuss the benefits limecrete could bring to your project, give your building the chance to breath.

Another beautiful building and great access!

Open fires are a central feature but can’t beat  underfloor heating for warmth and convenience

Experience is everything. Getting the levels correct before slight compaction

Great feature wall!

Lots of photos showing the full process on another interesting project that we have had the privilege of being involved with.  Including a picture slipped in of the new boots on a shy model!
