Hi all, I'm in Gloucestershire doing up a grade 2* listed building. Halfway through the job the client employed an advisory company regarding conservation and after putting the render scratch coat on the company have piped up that we shouldn't use it because it's supplied from Shropshire not Gloucestershire and it won't match the surrounding buildings. (the client won't pay for it to be painted) It's the back of the building and neighbouring properties are painted lime in all colours and some sand and cement render. The lime we're using will dry to a natural pale lime colour. We had to go out of the County for our supplier because after discussion with the local company they suggested that their product wouldn't be suitable for our job. Does anyone know a reason why lime from one county can't be used in another? The lime render we're using is used all over the country on grade 1 buildings including historic buildings in London. Any ideas on how I can persuade this advisory company to accept the render we're using? I've given them the info about where it's been used and on what buildings but they're digging their heels in. Ideas much appreciated thanks.
