  • ⇢ I have made a chimney using lime mortar and soft mud bricks. Now it’s time for smoothing or the like. Therefore, I would like to know what materials would be the best for an external smoothing on an exposed area. I have slaked lime, Jurassic lime and quartz sand available.

  • ⇢ I have hired a mason who believes that Jurassic mortar can only be recoated after a year. What is your opinion on this? Can it be recoated after is has dried white in about 28 days?

  • ⇢ Do you have any experience with how the lime mortar adheres to marble or limestone? Will there possibly be any requirements for the roughness of the surface or the like?

  • ⇢ My question is if I, as a private individual, can drive to your place and buy 5 x 25 kg Rødvig Slaked Lime?

  • ⇢ If I have used one of your coloured products, is it then possible to get the exact same colour 5 years later?

  • ⇢ What goes with aerated concrete?

  • ⇢ I must do bricklaying with old limestone. What should I use for that?

  • ⇢ I have built a round sauna and have covered the inside with willow branches. How should I do the plaster it? The temperature can reach 85 degrees.

  • ⇢ I have an old brick hearth where the plaster in the combustion chamber has fallen off. Which product would you recommend that I use for the plastering of the hearth?

  • ⇢ I have a farm from 1875 which is whitewashed. On the property we have a chicken coop that I would like to whitewash but the masonry is repaired with sand mortar 0-2mm, which contains cement. Is it possible to do something so it'll be a good result?

  • ⇢ I own an old half-timbered house from 1827, which have renovated several times (by the previous owner). The facade is painted with silicate paint. Is it possible to switch to lime paint and use that in the future or would it require a cleaning of the facade?

  • ⇢ We have to whitewash our farm this year and it has always been whitewashed by the previous owner. Is it possible to buy pigment powder to mix in the lime? And do you sell it?

  • ⇢ How much will 1 kg of pigment powder cover? Do I buy the lime and powder separately and mix it myself?

  • ⇢ About 5 years ago a skilled craftsman plastered my basement and whitewashed the walls. He used your products. Now I need to whitewash the walls again. I still have about 7-8 liters of Rødvig sand lime (00) from back then. Is it possible to use this? What do I use so that the walls won't "contaminate" afterwards? I think craftsmen call it lime water... Can you give me some advice on what to do? Og do you sell these products?

  • ⇢ I am a self-employed mason and is working on a project where I need to re-point the gable. The customer wants me to use slaked mortar, which he wants to mix with brown pigment colour. The gable is approximately 35 m2. 1) Which of your mortars should I use? 2) How much do I need? 3) Suggestions for the mixing? 4) Price?

  • ⇢ I own a house of unhewn stones with burned joints from about 1890. Which type of mortar for jointing would you recommend?

  • ⇢ I have a old foundation with large boulders held together by cement. It has been whitewashed but now I would like to remove the lime from the boulders so they appear as raw stone. What is the best approach to remove the old lime from the stones? Thank you in advance for your help.

  • ⇢ Boulders from 1660 - which mortar would be suitable for joint between these lovely rocks? We have bought pit sand and have tried with white cement... The result wasn't great... What should we do?

  • ⇢ We purchased an old property that has previously been whitewashed. I'm a little unsure about what would be the best to paint it with - lime or silicate? and why one over the other? Some has to be plastered before I paint it - what should I use for that? I have read that lime won't stick to cement but I find that cement last for longer. What would you recommend?
