Lime products allow moisture to travel through them and will wick away moisture from brick or stone & deteriorate faster than the surrounding masonry, protecting the building for centuries.
Lime mortars are able to form hairline cracks that self-heal in the presence of moisture, by form of carbonation, reducing the chances of forming larger cracks
Lime absorbs CO2 as it cures, gives off less CO2 in it's production and uses less energy during production than cement based products

Buildings reclaim over 95% of the brick & stone used when built with lime products. Lime can be re-burnt or used as aggregate in re-building works.
