Historic Lime Stucco and Plaster Repair in New Jersey

The Technical Install Team of LimeWorks.us was called in to perform a Historic Lime Stucco repair to reverse some of the inappropriate finish that had occurred over the years at this Historic New Jersey home. When the team arrived they found this 19th century brick home covered in layers of peeling latex paint and years of well meaning repair attempts using harmful Portland Cement based mortars and stucco.

Besides the peeling paint and gaping holes, water was trapped within the masonry walls which made it incredibly inefficient to heat which can often will lead to build up of mold growth within the building.

The LimeWorks.us Technical Install Team removed the layer of latex paint and localized areas of the Portland cement based materials which were contributing to an adjacent wall system failure. They repointed with lime-based Ecologic™ Mortar and applied Ecologic™ Mortar SCG (non-pigmented) to repair and replace the historic lime stucco. Finally, the lime stucco was whitewashed using breathable Saint-Astier Lime Paint “Natural” (non-pigmented) to finish the repair campaign with this traditional whitewash.
