External Wall Insulation
As energy prices increase it is often cost effective to reduce the amount you spend on heating your home by insulating it effectively. Many older homes and those that do not have cavity walls are much harder to insulate than buildings erected in the last 20 years, since building regulations have forced builders to make them energy efficient.
External Insulation also known as, External Wall Insulation (EWI) systems are becoming the affordable option to reduce heat loss and improve the thermal comfort of a property.
EWI systems significantly reduce energy loss by wrapping the building in a thermally resistant cladding before being rendered with a protective, weatherproof finish.
How does EWI work?
The majority of properties built before 1930 were constructed with solid walls, so they don’t have cavities that can be injected with insulation. Therefore the best way of making your home more energy efficient is to insulate the external walls.
Following an assessment of your property and your decision on the external insulating material to be used, the insulating panels are fixed to the external walls using adhesive mortar and ties. The panels are then covered in mortar, which is then given a render finish.
Apart from looking brighter and fresher your home will also be more energy efficient while being insulated against damp and noise pollution.
