Non-traditional houses and homes with solid walls can lose up to double the heat that cavity-construction properties. External wall insulation can massively improve the energy efficiency of homes built before 1920 and save you money on your energy bills.
What is External Wall Insulation?
If your home has solid walls, then there is a very good chance that they are not insulated. With external wall insulation, our installers will fix a layer of insulation material to the outside wall and all external insulation is between 50mm and 100mm. This will then be covered with a special type of render or decorative cladding. There are lots of different colours and finishes to choose from including painted, smooth or textured.
How Long Does External Wall Insulation Take?
External wall insulation can take up to ten days as the length of time varies from home to home. Solid walls are more difficult to insulate that cavity walls, and so this process does take longer but will save you more on your heating bills than cavity wall insulation.
The Benefits of External Wall Insulation
