WHY LIME? BENEFITS OF LIME PLASTER AND VENETIAN STUCCO

 

▪ Due to high absorbency and high PH, walls finished with lime plasters control air quality by absorbing carbon dioxide and stabilizing humidity at a comfortable level.
▪ Lime plasters are naturally resistant to mold and fungus. This is true even in the most humid climates near the ocean or in the humid areas of a house, such as bathrooms.
▪ Lime plasters are much harder to damage than paint since within 60 days after application they turn into limestone. They are also easy to repair at any time.
▪ Paint begins to fade and look dirty within 5 - 8 years, if not sooner. Lime plasters develop a pleasing natural patina that will look great for decades. In fact, many of the lime plasters you see in Italy are few hundred years old.
▪ If you'd like to change the color of the plaster in a few years, an easy lime wash or a single thin layer of new plaster over the old plaster will suffice to make a huge difference and keep it beautiful. With repainting, you may need costly preparation work and at least two coats of material to update the walls.
▪ Lime plasters have a beautiful finish and can be applied in any texture, color or sheen while adding value to the property.
