We only ever use lime mortar for long-lasting, beautiful finishes

The lime mortar we use for all pointing work will expand and contract – due to humidity and temperature – at the same level as your stonework. Unlike cement, which is slower, this means that your new lime pointing will remain attached to your stonework reducing cracking and erosion for many years longer.
