External wall insulation

Un-insulated solid walls can lose heat twice as fast as un-insulated cavity walls but insulating them externally could save you up to £435 each year and save 1770 kg/CO2/year* (*source: Energy Savings Trust).

Basically… the better insulated a property is, the less money you will spend heating it.

What is external wall insulation?

External wall insulation involves fixing a layer of insulation material to the outer wall of a property (which is not of cavity construction) then covering the insulation material with render or cladding.

There are many finishes available including smooth, painted, textured, tiled, panelled, pebble-dashed or brick slips.

We use several different systems like SPS Envirowall, Wetherby, Permaroc and Knauf.

What is the process?

We will carry out a full technical survey of your property to make sure it is suitable for external wall insulation before any work is carried out.

 

The surveyor will check:

  • If the property is suitable for external wall insulation
  • Identify what items are need to be moved or extended on the areas being insulated and rendered
  • If the window and soffits have suitable overhang to except the system and discuss what is needed to achieve this if not
  • Discuss what type of insulation and finish if required

There are five stages to the process

When finished your home will have a great new look and have a maintenance-free finish that will not require decorating for many years which will help to save you money on your heating bills.

Stage 1

Erect scaffold if required and remove or extend all external wall furniture.

Stage 2

Attaching a supporting track around the bottom of the property at damp course level.

Stage 3

Fixing insulation boards to the external walls using a cement-based adhesive, followed by a mechanical fixing pin.

Stage 4

Applying a base coat render and glass fibre mesh to prevent cracking.

Stage 5

Apply primer and finish off with your chosen decorative finish.
