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.

Through Coloured Render

monocouche renderThrough Coloured Monocouche Render is a one coat, pre-mixed, cementitious, weather resistant, external decorative, pigmented render, suitable for most types of brick or blockwork. This is machine applied allowing for fast application with shorter programme periods, thereby reducing associated scaffolding and site costs.

Anyone with a basic understanding of French will instantly recognize that mono couche means single 'layer.' Monocouche renders were specifically engineered for single coat application to full specification thickness without the need for subsequent layers. The micro-porous material allows the substrate to breathe, and being pigmented means that decoration is not required. This results in a lower-maintenance exterior surface which is more resistant to cracks and algae growth and the natural phenomenon of lime bloom.

Monocouche Render is generally applied directly onto blockwork in New Build scenarios, being now well established as a far superior product to that of traditional sand and cement render. Monocouche Render is also used in refurbishment projects on top of existing substrates in addition with key- and base-coats. The benefits are a fast application of a long-lasting durable weather-proof surface which can instantly transform an old house into new.
