We Are Devon and Cornwall’s Established Heritage Lime Plasterers
From our base in Belstone, near Okehampton in Devon, C&G Heritage Plastering Ltd provide lime plastering and rendering of heritage and modern properties.
Company founder, Chris Walsh, has over 25 years experience as a traditional and specialist lime plasterer in the South West. He has gathered around him a team of craftspeople with the skills to be able to complete residential and commercial projects of all sizes and types – all of whom take pride in finishing to an exceptionally high standard.
We carry out work throughout the South West of England, recently in the areas of Okehampton, Exeter, Tavistock, Newton Abbot and Torbay – from standard construction houses, to period architecture and stone or cob.

Breathing Life Into Your Property …
We are passionate about the benefits of the correct use of traditional materials, to work with your building and to preserve its future.
Being softer and weaker than stone, brick or cob, and permeable to moisture, lime mortar moves with your building and allows it to breathe. Modern cementitious plasters can create problems with damp by trapping moisture and, because they are often harder than the base material, any movement results in cracks or damage to the masonry. The traditional skills of lime plasterers are the reason why we have such a rich heritage of old buildings in Devon and Cornwall.
We work with natural lime because it is:
Breathability is essential in older properties, and properties built using traditional materials and methods. It helps to preserve the structure of the building, reduce damp and create a healthier living environment inside.
Its flexibility and elasticity allows for the inevitable movement of structures, reducing shrinkage and cracking.
The plasters are natural, they allow for the recovery and reuse of building materials, and they re-absorb carbon dioxide as they cure.
The Right Material for the Job
Traditional plasters provide an attractive and appropriate finish for heritage properties – and one that has been proven to last!
