Description

Lath are thin strips of wood used as a key for lime plaster. Lath provides an ideal background for lime plasters as it can be wetted down which helps the slower drying of the plaster.

When the plaster has failed the lath can be clearly seen. Sometimes the laths need replacing because Lath can deteriorate over the years due to insect infestation or rot, especially if modern less breathable plasters or paints have been applied.

Sawn Larch Lath: Larch is a good quality flexible wood which can follow the uniformed contours of older walls.

Sawn Oak Lath: Oak is a popular choice of timber for the lath. Sawn lath is straighter with a less textured surface than split Lath and is best for repairing lathed walls.

Riven Oak Lath: The laths are split by hand (hence the cost) using traditional methods such as mauls and froes or riving knives along the length of the grain. The result is a thin strip of wood offerering a textured fibrous surface offering a sound key for the lime plaster that is surprisingly strong and durable.

It is vital that the initial render coats applied onto lath include hair or fibre to improve the renders tensile strength.
