Lime Merchants

Many mainstream builders merchants will have some products that are 'sustainable'. FSC timber is available from large well known retailers, but specialist sustainable products are more difficult to locate. Lime is one of these, as we are not talking about hydrating lime here, but lime putty and hydraulic limes. Much time and energy can be saved by using specialist centres. The following organisations state that they will be able to provide products and services for sustainable building in S Wales.
