What is External insulation?

External wall insulation involves fixing a layer of insulation material to the wall from sizes 20mm to over 100mm thicknesses, then covering it with a special type of silicone colour render.

  • It can be applied without disruption to the household does not reduce the floor area of your home
  • It will renew the appearance of outer walls.
  • It will improve weatherproofing and sound resistance.
  • It fills cracks and gaps in the brickwork, which will reduce draughts.
  • Increases the lifespan of your walls by protecting the brickwork.
  • Reduces condensation on internal walls and can help prevent damp (but will not solve rising or penetration damp).
  • It is best installed at the same time as external refurbishment work to reduce the cost.
