Lime is the best and most versatile binder in the world, but there is a lack of information and guidance on the use of this vital building material. Architects, enthusiasts and professionals within the building trade should find "Building with Lime" a valuable reference tool. This technical manual is a starting point for those considering lime as a building material. It is also a general reference for the broad range of uses for lime in construction. Drawing on the authors' experience of using lime in building, it provides the reader with a wealth of practical advice that includes: a clear explanation of all the major uses of lime in building such as mortars and plasters, painting and finishes, ceilings and foundations, repair, maintenance and conservation; and a chapter on testing and standards covering limestone recognition, and field testing to ensure reliable materials and workmanship for the production and use of building limes.
