Renovation and restoration of old buildings forms the core of Jason’s work.

Pembrokeshire Limework is pleased to introduce a new member of the team: the Doff.’

For many restorations local materials are used, with the result that the buildings are restored in harmony with the environment. This includes using granite, lime mortar, lime rendering and oak pegs.

Traditional mass-masonry wall construction (which includes most walls built before 1919) works on the basis that moisture entering a wall is able to escape in the form of water and water vapour as easily as possible. Lime mortars can readily handle the transmission between the inside and outside of a masonry wall, owing to the complex interconnected pore structure of masonry.

Restoration is a major part of our work, it is the process of returning a building to its former state.

Lime work

Lime allows the building to breathe, it lets moisture in and out, moves with the building and is far less brittle

Restoring the cornicing in the main drawing room was a job we were very nervous about - the actual cornicing is bespoke because of its complex pattern and with the added headache that the walls/ceiling were out of square, it was a really difficult job. The result is truly impressive, the quality of the restoration is of the highest order-  you cannot see the joins. It was a true labour of love and an incredible piece of work - thank you Jason and Tony.

We live in our old Welsh farmhouse, known to the family as our “one last adventure”. The building construction dates back to around 1900; it underwent modernisation in the 1970/80s using cement mortar and concrete slurry, the house unfortunately faced the consequences of these changes in the form of persistent dampness. After extensive research and investigation, we stumbled upon the extraordinary properties of lime, particularly hot lime, and were introduced to Jason. Jason's expertise proved invaluable as he conducted a comprehensive course at our home, guiding us through the wonders of lime and its numerous benefits. Throughout the day, we delved into the intricacies of lime mixing, he emphasised the importance of proper personal protective equipment (PPE), and we studied the correct application of lime on various surfaces for tasks such as pointing or dubbing out (dubbing out acts as a foundation for lime render and harling.) Our experience with Jason was nothing short of exceptional and absorbing. Not only did he possess highly honed skills, but he also adeptly communicated his knowledge and injected a sense of enjoyment and fun into the learning process. Kitty, my wife, and I were thoroughly engrossed in the course, each taking away a wealth of information. We wholeheartedly endorse and recommend Jason for anyone embarking on their own DIY lime work, knowing that Jason is both an excellent teacher and a delightful presence.

Jason came out to review our properties following a detailed conversation some weeks before. Jason turned up as planned and spent a considerable time reviewing and discussing options as to not only what needed to be done but also the best order and most cost effective. First class in all aspects.
