Portloe Chapel finished beeck paint

Paint

Lime offers a vapour permeable finish and, as such, requires a paint coating which performs in the same way. Modern paints, even the ones which claim to be breathable, are not suitable for lime renders and plasters and will prevent moisture movement, leading to failure.

Cornish Lime stock a wide variety of internal and external paints, suitable for lime based finishes. These include Beeck Mineral Paints, which form a chemical bond with the substrate, resulting in an incredibly durable finish. We also stock a range of further vapour permeable paints, including Earthborn Claypaints and Aglaia Natural Paints.
