External Wall Insulation involves mechanically fixing insulated panels to the external substrate of a property and then applying a render finish. This can transform a property to a warmer more efficient place to live and create a modern fresh look for the external façade.
If your property was built prior to 1930 then it is likely to have solid walls. These properties were built without a cavity and the two skins of brick are tied together with bricks known as 'header bricks', the walls are usually 220mm – 250mm thick.
Without external wall insulation, nearly half of your heat is lost through the walls. This isn’t just burning money unnecessarily - especially with surging energy costs nowadays - but also contributes to environmental damage through CO2 emissions.
Solid walls can usually be insulated either by applying high density insulation material internally, externally or both.
