About Lime Culture

Lime Culture – Traditional Artisans with Traditional Values

We are a company that specialise in Lime Pointing and Brick/Stone Restoration for period and none period properties. This to include all other aspects of interior period property restoration for grade 1 & 2 listings. We also deal with the none Listed Period properties with the same skills and care used throughout the listed property field.
With more than 30 years of experience in this unique niche we have a professional team of experienced artisans. Our Master Craftsmen and Woman are fully qualified within the restoration field and all members of the Guild of Master Craftsmen.
Working with Lime Mortar and only using traditional hand tools for the preparation and finishing we are one of the few companies keeping the Artisan skills alive. We NEVER use cement-based products and always use period materials throughout.
A period property is pre 1920’s which was built using Lime Mortar and in so should only be re-pointed using the same material. Modern cement-based products will only add to any issues a property may already have such as damp. Lime based materials allow a building to breath unlike Cement which simply smothers period properties and a direct cause of damp within a building.
All work carried out by the Lime Group comes with a standard 15-year guarantee and aftercare service.
