Buying clay at Lehm-Laden: That means choosing an ecological and healthy building material. A clay plaster impresses with several advantages: It is an extremely user-friendly building material, flexible and versatile and available in different structure, thicknesses and colors. It can be processed by hand and with plastering machines alike.
In addition, clay plaster contributes to a positive indoor climate and is an ecological building material: It requires only very little production energy.
Building walls with clay and plastering them ensures reliable regulation of room air humidity. For example, when cooking or heating the humidity fluctuates, which the clay balances out. Moisture in the room air either diffuses to the outside of the building, where it dries, or is later released back into the room air. In half-timbered buildings in particular, this dehumidifying property makes a significant contribution to protecting the wood.
Clay minerals are also able to bind external agents and pollutants and thus “clean” the room air.
Clay plaster for your house - whether for the renovation of a half-timbered house or for a new building: clay is a jack-of-all-trades among building materials.
But clay plaster is not the only ecological building material. A healthy building consists of more than just a good plaster made of clay or lime: insulation against heat and cold, wall heating for comfort and colors for joy.
Lime as a building material - it's like clay, just a little more. Clay is an earth-bound building material because it actually comes
directly from the earth. Lime also comes from the earth, but it is far
more complex - and also associated with exciting chemical processes such
as setting and adhesion to various substrates. Do you have any
questions about building with lime? You can find the answers here, and
you can also buy lime plaster at Lehm-Laden.

A little knowledge of building materials: the various clay plasters and their areas of application
Not all clay is the same. All areas of application require the variants optimized for them, since the earth building materials differ in composition, grain size, aggregates and mixing ratios. Clay plasters, insulating stones or drywall are mixed with sand or plant fibers in order to ideally fulfill their respective purpose. Plasters can be very different: coarse or fine, light or heavy, colored or earthy.
Base plaster or undercoat plaster is used, for example, to level out
unevenness, as an embedding mortar or for insulation systems. The much
finer clay finish and fine-finishing plasters are, in turn, suitable as
final plasters. But they too differ from each other in terms of their
grain or color, both optically and haptically. Some form fine and
ready-to-paint surfaces, others can be used to create ready-made,
ready-to-use surfaces: colored plaster or finishing plasters refined
with effect additives make it possible. Before you buy clay plaster,
please know exactly the area of application, in order to find the right
