    Is this lime plaster?

    That is lime plaster if you have no cavities in your walls then putting gypsum over the top will only cause damp the wall needs to breath

    2.5 years old lime render crumbling away... advice appreciated

    Finish is awful for a start, definately frost damage has added to the issues but could either be not mixed right in the right ratio in the first place or wasnt sprayed with water enough when each new coat was applied so it hasnt adhered properly, also explains the hollow sound

    Lime botch job?

    I am a lime specialist and think thats got to be one of the worst finishes I have ever seen, I doubt he will be back but wouldnt use him even if he did. If I was you would take it back to the scratch coat and if thats ok get another lime specialist to finish it

    Should all buildings without cavity be lime plastered and rendered?

    Yes they should otherwise they cant breathe and the moisture gets trapped in the walls therefore causing damp. Putting cement in lime is a waste of time most do it to speed up drying time or are inexperienced with lime but it still stops it breathing and defeats the object

    Seems remarkably quiet in Devon for January

    Cement doesnt breathe so cannot be used on historic, listed buildings or cob buildings or any old property that doesnt have a cavity
