The Traditional Paint Company has been producing traditional paints and coatings for walls, timber and even metal for over 40 years, covering:

Eco friendly traditional Limewashes: These have been developed with historic conservation in mind. In fact, we have been producing traditional exterior limewash to the Suffolk Preservation’s Society recipe, using only the finest ingredients, for more than 35 years.

Many listed and historic properties have been coated with them. Therefore our lime is traditional Shake Lime Putty that has been matured for a minimum of six months. We do not use the cheaper hydrated “bag lime” powder available from builders merchants.
