What is External Wall Insulation?

External wall insulation is installed to the outside of your home to create an insulated layer that is windproof and watertight.

It is normally used to insulate solid wall properties and the surface is a protective render with decorative finish that improves the building’s appearance.

As it is installed from the outside, the insulation can be fitted without disruption to the household and the new weatherproofing will increase the lifespan of your walls by protecting brickwork.

This should only be installed by a professional installer as it is a highly specialised insulation measure. Depending on your location planning permission may be required, and it is important that your home is properly assessed before external wall insulation is installed to ensure the correct materials are used and to prevent installation issues such as condensation.

Why Insulate?

Almost half of all heat can be lost through uninsulated solid walls, and by properly insulating your solid walls you will save a lot of energy and help keep your home warm.
