Title: Building masonry with lime-based mortars

Ref Code: GG66
Authors: Bob de Vekey

Abstract1: Lime mortar is enjoying a revival and is being promoted by conservation organisations for restoration work and by environmentalists as an environmentally friendly material. It can be used for new build as well as for restoration and conservation work. This Good Building Guide gives guidance on the properties of lime mortars, mortar mix design and working with lime mortars. However, practice varies within the British Isles and the reader is advised to make sure that proposed works comply with local specifications, especially for heritage buildings. Some helpful further reading is given.
