Lime Plaster Specialists

Point Builders Ltd. are listed and period property specialists, meaning we have over 40 years’ experience working with lime plaster, a material central to construction of older buildings.

Our lime plastering team are experts in lime plastering techniques, having attended specialist training courses ranging from lime rendering to wattle and daub, three coat work, lath and plaster works and pargetting. We also offer bespoke lime plaster coving and ornate moulding services.

Our most senior plasterer has over 40 years’ experience in the trade, and we are constantly training new tradespeople in traditional lime plastering techniques, to ensure the next generation of Point Builders plasterers have the same expert knowledge and skills.

Much of our time is dedicated to removing sand and cement render or modern plaster that has been erroneously applied to older buildings, causing severe damp problems, unsightly cracking or rotting timber frames, and then applying lime plaster instead to restore breathability and flexibility.

We also offer painting and decorating services specifically for use on lime plaster or lime render bases, using compatible, breathable paint, which is essential to ensure adequate airflow through the materials. Oftentimes, modern masonry paint is applied on top of lime render or plaster, which eventually causes cracks, peeling and internal damp problems, as this non-breathable paint locks-in excessive moisture. Point Builders Ltd. offer specialist masonry paint removal services, using the non-damaging, English-Heritage-approved DOFF system, as well as sand and cement removal, to ensure that we can restore properties to their traditional state, replacing damaging, modern materials with sympathetic alternatives.

Charity Work

The Point Builders Team is passionate about giving back to the local community and to causes that are close to our hearts. Every few months we choose a charity to support, and a portion of our income is donated to that charity during that period. In May 2018, Point Builders Ltd went Purple for May to raise money for the Stroke Association – every team member wore purple to work for the day and together we raised £350 to help survivors of strokes and their families.
