Abstract: Use of renovation plasters on historical buildings has its specifics. This type of plasters does not have a historical tradition, due to its composition. By this reason renovation plasters are perceived negatively by representatives of conservation and their use on historical buildings is strictly regulated. With historically valuable buildings it is often also difficult to realize some very effective renovation measures, such as undercutting, grouting, electro osmosis and others. The causes often lie in preservation of monuments, as well as technical and economical problems. Therefore it is not very often possible to prevent the ground dampness penetration into bearing structures really consistently. That means we must count with the fact that dampness will appear in the masonry again and again and will influence the function of the renovation plasters. If we want the renovation system to work as long as possible, the access of ground dampness must be at least radically limited.
