Why Do We Use Lime Mortars?
Why do Stonemasons Glasgow use exclusively lime mortars and not cement? Lots of reasons. We use it in our lime pointing work as it is much more “elastic” than cement mortar letting it move more before any cracking occurs. Historic stone buildings move all the time with settlement, weather and temperature and the lime pointing and building mortars can absorb this movement due to its increased flexibility compared with cement.
Lime mortar is also much more porous than other mortars which allow vapour, usually in the form of rain or condensation, to exit the masonry quicker and more efficiently. This lowers the risk of frost damage caused by our frequent sub zero temperatures. Our pointing mixes are always lime based, as are our stone repair compounds. For this we use an excellent stone restoration formulation called Lithomex. You can read more about Lithomex on our stone repairs page or on the Masons Mortar Website.
Another important reason we use lime is of course it looks so much better. It weathers very well leaving a very traditional looking appearance and finish that cannot be replicated by other mortars.
