Stair Winder


Situated in a two hundred year old house in Whitstable

The old haired lime mortar and lime plaster had become loose over time, mainly due to repeated foot falls causing vibration. The laths however, were in perfect condition and had been installed with great skill (I only wish I had taken a picture).

To begin the process of repair, the laths were cleaned and the fixings checked. We then proceeded to plaster using our traditional slaked lime haired mortar and then skimmed it with our slaked fine lime plaster 3:2. It was then painted with traditional white lime wash to complete the whole effect .

This should now last for another two hundred years.
