limecrete flooring

Limecrete is a type of concrete that uses lime instead of cement as the primary binding agent. This traditional material has been used for centuries and is known for its breathability, flexibility, and environmental benefits. Limecrete flooring is particularly well-suited for historic buildings where maintaining breathability and structural integrity is crucial.

At Lime Plastering Wales, we specialise in limecrete flooring, a sustainable and historically authentic alternative to modern concrete. Ideal for both historic and contemporary buildings, limecrete floors offer a combination of strength, breathability, and aesthetic appeal that is unmatched by conventional flooring solutions.



Lime rendering has been a preferred choice for centuries, especially in the construction and restoration of historic and listed Grade 1 and Grade 2 buildings. In terms of environmental sustainability, lime rendering is an eco-friendly choice, as lime is a natural, renewable material that has minimal environmental impact. It is free from harmful chemicals and additives, making it a sustainable option for both historic preservation and modern construction projects. 

Environmental Sustainability:

Lime is a natural and renewable resource with a lower carbon footprint compared to cement. Choosing limecrete supports sustainable building practices and reduces environmental impact.


Limecrete floors allow moisture to evaporate naturally, reducing the risk of dampness and mold growth. This is especially important in historic buildings with stone or brick foundations that need to breathe.​


Limecrete is more flexible than traditional concrete, allowing it to accommodate slight movements and settling of buildings without cracking. This makes it an excellent choice for older structures.

Aesthetic Appeal

Limecrete floors offer a unique, natural finish that enhances the character of any space. They can be left in their natural state or finished with various treatments to achieve the desired look.


In summary, limecrete floors are robust and long-lasting, offering excellent performance in both residential and commercial settings. Limecrete provides a healthy indoor environment thanks to the breathability of limecrete which to helps regulate indoor humidity levels, contributing to a healthier living environment. Limecrete is ideal for restoring historic buildings, ensuring that renovations are in line with traditional building methods and materials.

At Lime Plastering Wales, we are dedicated to providing top-quality limecrete flooring solutions that blend tradition with innovation. Our experienced team of craftsmen are committed to delivering exceptional results that enhance the beauty and sustainability of your property.

Our limECRETE FLOORING process

We begin by assessing the site conditions and preparing the sub-base to ensure proper drainage and stability. This step is crucial for the longevity and performance of the limecrete floor.

Assessment & Preparation

Once the limecrete has cured, we apply any desired finishes, such as polishing, sealing, or adding a lime wash. These finishing touches enhance the floor’s appearance and protect it from wear and tear.


Our team expertly install the limecrete, carefully placing and levelling it to create a smooth, even surface. The limecrete is then allowed to cure slowly, ensuring maximum strength and durability.


We create a custom limecrete mix tailored to your project’s specific requirements. This involves selecting the appropriate type of lime, aggregate, and additives to achieve the desired properties and finish.
