External Wall Insulation
External wall insulation, also referred to as solid wall insulation is a system consisting of high performance insulation which is fitted to the external walls of your home which not only insulates, but protects the exterior as well.
It is then covered with specialist render cladding of your choice. With a wide range of finishes in a variety of colours and textures, we can give your home a durable and attractive appearance.
This type of insulation is particularly suited to solid wall homes; however we can also provide advice on non-traditional construction properties.
What does it involve?
Often requiring scaffolding, the installation of external wall insulation typically takes a week to complete depending on the weather and the size of your home.
Insulating material is added to the outside walls of your home and is then coated with a protective render or cladding. This is a specialist job and requires an approved installer who can specialise in the use of our insulation system.
Benefits of External Wall Insulation
Lowers your fuel bills
By reducing the amount of heat escaping through your walls, you can heat your home faster and keep it warmer for longer using external wall insulation (EWI).
Protects the fabric of your home
By keeping the building warm and dry, EWI protects the building's structure and improves weatherproofing. The finished render is durable and breathable so you won't have issues with damp either.
Improves the appearance of your home
We have a wide range of finishes available making it possible to mimic the existing façade of your home or to completely re-model it using any of our aggregate or textured finishes to our brick and more complex décor profiles.
Reduces carbon footprint
By choosing to have external wall insulation you are helping to reduce carbon emissions.
