Hello everyone.....first time poster here :)

I've just bought a small timber framed cottage (dating to about 1650) which needs re-plastering throughout. I've had a quote from a local specialist but I'm not 100% sure on what he's quoted. He's suggested two coat thermalime traditional plaster consisting of NHL2 with crushed chalk with the addition of cork for thermal qualities. Does this sound like a suitable spec?

Can anyone recommend anyone to carry out Lime Plastering in Mid-Suffolk from personal experience? Also any guide on approximate rates would be appreciated, looking at 120m2 to walls only.

Thanks in advance.

Hi there,

I would recommend speaking with Mike Rickards @ Rickards Period Plastering. Or Kelvyn @ KGJ Limecraft. Both very experienced in plastering timber frame buildings here in Suffolk.

I would always suggest the use of a chalk plaster on a timber frame property. What type of background have you got to plaster over? Is it lath?

Sounds about right but a better product would be warmcote and limecote from Best of lime who are based in Suffolk/Essex. Duncan Cowper is probably your best bet as he actually developed the stuff. Best of lime would be able to give you his number.
