Lime is one of the great survivors in building materials. The many reasons for using lime are still valid today

What did the Romans ever do for us?

One of their many achievements was to introduce ecologically-sound building materials in the form of lime which they used to build structurally complicated forms such as The Pantheon and The Colosseum.

These monumental structures still stand after 2000 years of corrosion and natural disasters, making lime one of the great survivors in building materials. The many reasons for using lime are still valid today.

This highly aesthetic material is both breathable and flexible, allowing for moisture to escape and movement in historic buildings. It also has ecological values, being energy efficient in its manufacture – using up to 90% less energy than cement – and is completely recyclable after use.
