It was partially re-rendered with Keim Universal render – a lime based renovation render, and painted with the breathable Keim Solidat ME which reduces bacteria and mould spores.

Before re-rendering and redecoration
The oldest part of the property was constructed in the 18th Century from random rubble stone walling which, over time, had been over-rendered with unsuitable cementitious material which does not allow the masonry to breath thus creating damp issues internally.
Previously painted elevations benefit from the application of KEIM Soldalit-ME system.
Keim Soldalit-ME was chosen for its proven long-life decorative and protective integral finish as well as increased resistance to mould and fungal growth.
The cementitious material was removed and reinstated with KEIM Universal Render, a lime based renovation render with excellent breathability and consistency curing times.
Keim Universal Render was specified for the re-rendering for its environmentally friendly and sustainable properties, along with ease of use and high breathability. Keim Universal Render comprises a hydrated lime and white cement binder with sand and mineral fibre fillers that can accommodate a high degree of movement while preventing surface crazing and cracking.
The new render was coated with Keim Soldalit-ME mineral paint – the system achieves some 96% breathability.
The previously painted elevations have received a minimum 10 year product warranty with the newly rendered and painted elevations receiving a minimum 20 year product warranty.
