This is a cottage of one of Private clients. This cottage is painted with a special breathable paint called Beeck Renosil fromThe Cornish Lime Company based up in Bodmin, Cornwall.
This paint is a Breathable, Durable, Non Toxic And Environmentally Friendly paint.
Beecks have manufactured mineral silicate paints since the late 1890s. The range is comprehensive and unsurpassed in terms of lightfastness, vapour permeability and durability. Suitable for historic and contemporary buildings. Over 300 colours are available in their Stone, Classic and Trend ranges
These paints are breathable so you can imagine it's like putting a pullover on a building to keep it warm. Bare in mind once you apply the mist coat and 3 coats that you will need to put a coat of this Lime wash paint on every year for first five years. The top up every year is quite a quick process but necessary.
