How to renovate and old façade with limestone mortars

Share this solution

Over the years, façades deteriorate and need to be renovated.Therefore it is important to know the characteristics and behaviour of the materials they contain (brick, natural stone, limestone mortars, one-coat mortars) so that the new coating is chosen appropriately.

The mortars in the REVAT® CAL, highly breathable and permeable to water vapour, provide a highly decorative coating for all kinds of façades and indoor environments, and also for restoring all kinds of buildings, including landmark and old buildings.

Continual exposure to weather conditions (rain, freezing conditions, sudden temperature changes, etc.), causes the façades to age naturally. To restore façades, appropriate coating materials must be used.
