About Us

Muddy Mortars offers an excellent service in all types of traditional plastering, pointing and stonework as well as contemporary green building techniques.

Our Story

Here at Muddy Mortars, we’re a traditional building team with a modern approach. We don’t just break down buildings to rebuild and improve; we’re breaking down the builder stereotype too.

Our team is passionate about repairing, renovating, and restoring traditional buildings, whether it be a rustic Cornish cottage, a period town house, or a dilapidated listed structure in the South West countryside. We’re experts in lime rendering, lime pointing and lime plastering, as well as cob repairs, stone repairs, and mass cob.

We operate mainly in Cornwall, but will travel further afield for really special projects. We’re bringing traditional building into the modern age and specialise in green eco building techniques in the South West as well.

We pride ourselves on the longevity and quality of our work, whether it’s a large area of render, intricate detail work, or restoring an entire listed country cottage – we have a passion for renovating and improving characterful buildings in Cornwall and the South West.


"We used Muddy Mortars for two major projects - the complete renovation of a cob and granite barn and a granite cottage, and we are delighted with the finished results."
