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
I have used Eco Cork on a couple of projects was specified by the conservation officer due to its thermal properties, very easy to use and nice stuff first one was done about 9 years ago still looks good
now, didnt need to go on a course
We are a Devon lime specialist based in Exeter we would be interested in the job please have a look at our website to see our work and give me a call on 07710 057954 if you want to discuss further
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
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
We travel allover the South West and can work in London too as am from there originally and still have a place there.
Looking to expand so if your looking for a specialist do Eco Cork too and cob drop me a message
