Lime Repointing, Sizergh Castle, Cumbria

Lime Repointing at Sizergh Castle in Cumbria involved a comprehensive restoration. The prior use of sand and cement mortar in a previous repointing project had trapped moisture in the walls, leading to internal damp penetration. The full lime repointing addressed this issue by reintroducing breathability, allowing the walls to effectively release moisture externally, thereby mitigating the damp-related concerns within the castle.
