C Ansell & Sons Ltd use lime mortar together with other age old traditional materials where needed and required.
Lime mortar is a type of mortar composed of lime and an aggregate such as sand, mixed with water. It is one of the oldest known types of mortar, dating back to the 4th century BC.
Working in an area where lime was substantially quarried many years ago in Dorking, it is pleasing once again to use this material now that it is more readily available. Training plays a very important part in its successful use for pointing, brick-laying, plastering and render panels.
