External Wall Insulation

Written by DuraRend on . Posted in External Rendering Services

Unlike unfilled cavity wall homes which lose approximately 35% of heat through their walls, solid wall homes will lose as much as 45% space heat though untreated walls. Any measures to make heating systems more efficient are made less effective as heat escapes thought the external walls. External Wall Insulation Systems are suitable for both traditional and non-traditional solid wall housing and can significantly reduce heat-loss, leading to lower fuel bills and carbon emissions.

As well as improving thermal efficiency, EWI systems simultaneously revitalize the appearance of a property thus making it more valuable all-round. Lower U Values through insulating externally and no internal living space is lost. The risk of condensation withing the wall structure and thermal bridging is eliminated. A Weather-Proof, attractive and durable maintenance-free exterior is provided as part of the thermal cladding of the building.
