External Wall Insulation

External Wall Insulation involves the installation of insulated panels onto the external surface of a building, which are then secured by mechanical means and finished with a render. This process not only provides improved insulation for the property, making it a more efficient and comfortable living space, but also gives the external fa├žade a modern and refreshed appearance.

If your property was constructed before 1930, it is likely to have solid walls, with no cavity. These walls typically consist of two brick skins, tied together with ‘header bricks’, and have a thickness of 220mm to 250mm.

Without external wall insulation, up to 50% of the heat produced in the property can be lost through the walls. This not only results in unnecessary expenditure, particularly with the current surge in energy costs, but also contributes to environmental damage through the release of CO2 emissions.

Solid walls can be insulated by applying high-density insulation material internally, externally or both, depending on the specific requirements of the property.
