Lime coating on brick and plastered building surfaces is an old technique that provides the most diffusion-open coating and a unique surface look. Whitewashed walls can breathe, and the technique ensures that moistened walls can dry. Limestone also has other qualities and strengths that make it a particularly suitable building material in our part of the world.
