Mary Robinson Centre in Ballina, Co. Mayo. Great job done with Lime render and plaster. Cork board insulation, Stoneware Studios repair mortars, Earthborn Breathable paints inside and out. Cast Iron rainwater goods and you name it this has it. Well done Mayo Co Co for a great job and Brian and all at LPB.
Otterbein Calcea Insulating Plaster supplied by Stoneware Studios being applied by the men of Kenneth Sisk Plastering in Cork City. Easy to apply, no biodegradation, NHL with perlite (natural forming volcanic glass used for a long time for drainage and aeration) and with v good thermal performance we like this product. Thermal conductivity 0.083 W/(m-k)
So this is what happens when foil-backed PIR insulated plaster board is attached to solid stone walls in Ireland; mould, rot and trapped dampness. Unfortunately it’s all too common. Check out the alternatives at one of our Insulating Old Buildings workshops this summer.
