RESTORING A CHURCH WITH A TRADITIONAL RENDER MADE WITH TRADICAL LIME

Project Details
Date: 2012
Location: In the Nièvre department
Entreprise: Sables Chaux
Category: historic-buildings

Project Description

The damaged façades of this building have recently been restored in a way that enables the renders to do their job of protecting the masonry. The work involved stripping the façades and applying a traditional lime render in three coats, in keeping with best practices.

The ashlar was cleaned using a nebulous spray method and repointed with lime.

The overall effect is harmonious and gives the building a sturdy look!
