When it comes to wall insulation, many people think that solid walls can’t be insulated. We know that this isn’t the case and it is why here at Six Star Group we are proud to offer a dedicated solid wall insulation service.
Solid walls sound like they should stop heat from escaping. However, solid walls can lose twice as much heat as cavity walls do. Thankfully solid walls can also be insulated and this is a service that we specialise in. Wall installation can be completed either the inside or outside your home. For some customers, it’s possible to do part of your home using internal wall insulation and also external wall insulation.
Internal wall insulation is a slightly cheaper alternative to external wall insulation. However, it can be disruptive and result in less floor space in the room. You will need to have some fittings removed before the solid wall insulation can begin. Sometimes we may also need to prepare the walls by removing loose render/plaster or treating algae or mould. We can also help ensure that any rising damp or penetrating damp issues are rectified as its important not to trap moisture into the building before work begins.
External wall insulation creates minimal disruption to your home and does not reduce the floor area of rooms. It can also give your outer walls a fresh makeover and add, on average, £6,000 to the value of a property in the Birmingham and the West Midlands*. It will also improve the sound – ideal to block out sound from busy streets. External wall insulation can also reduce condensation on internal walls and be a preventative measure against some forms of damp. However, we do we assess the ventilation and that you check to see if you require planning permission before works begin.
