Having a warm and cosy home is important to us all. What we may not realise is that up to half of the heat in your home will make an escape through the walls. This means that proper insulation is vital if you want to live in a warm and cosy home with low energy bills.
External wall insulation is a great option for those homes that need some help when it comes to keeping the heat in. According to Birmingham City Council, it can improve the value of your home by, on average, £6,000 in the West Midlands.
Older properties, typically built before 1920, tend not to have cavity walls, therefore they are not able to have cavity wall insulation. If you have an older property, this doesn’t mean that you need to have a cold and uninviting home. Instead, external wall insulation is the ideal solution to your heat loss problems.
Solid wall insulation is when your home is wrapped with materials that are designed to slow the heat from leaking out of your home. External wall insulation comes in a variety of different colours and finishes which means that not only does external wall insulation make your property warmer, but it can also refresh the look of the outside of the property too.
You can expect the external wall insulation project to take between 2 to 4 weeks. However, this can vary depending on the weather and a variety of different factors relating to your property. We will begin by erecting scaffolding and removing downpipes, TV aerials and other fixtures that can be removed.
We will also tape up windows and doorframes, to ensure that they are protected during the external wall insulation installation process. Rigid insulation boards will be double fixed securely to the property and then two layers of render will be applied with reinforcing mesh. Once dry, the wall is primed and the top coat of render applied. In addition, we will ensure that all of your fixtures will be reinstated and that all of the tape is removed, leaving you with a beautifully insulated and smart-looking property.
