Replacement of external render to a 19th century cottage

Replacement of external render to a 19th century cottage
Northend, Goxhill

The existing render was removed by only using hand tools to minimise the amount of damage to the soft brick substrate.

The rendering was replaced using a St.Astiers product Thermocromex which has been supplied by the local company, Lincolnshire Lime.

Although the main product in Thermocromex is the traditional product lime, which allows the substrate beneath its application to breath, it has the additional benefit of polymers.

The polymers within the render allow a modicum of flexibility to the product, giving it the ability to 'move' with the property, thus reducing the effect of cracking that can occur.
