External Wall Insulation in Leicestershire

External wall insulation involves fixing a layer of insulation material to the wall, then covering it with a special type of render (plasterwork) or cladding. The finish can be smooth, textured, painted, tiled, panelled, pebble-dashed, or finished with brick slips.


 Why External Wall Insulation?

There are many reasons why external wall insulation is a great investment.

External Wall Insulation;

    • can be applied without disruption to the household
    • does not reduce the floor area of your home
    • renews the appearance of outer walls
    • improves weatherproofing and sound resistance
    • fills cracks and gaps in the brickwork, which reduces draughts
    • increases the life of your walls by protecting the brickwork
    • reduces internal wall condensation helping to prevent damp (but will not solve rising or penetrating damp)
    • is best installed at the same time as external refurbishment work to reduce the cost
    • may need planning permission – check with your local council
    • requires good access to the outer walls
    • is not recommended if the outer walls are structurally unsound and cannot be repaired

How it Works

First a layer of insulation material is attached to the walls using mechanical fixings and adhesive. This acts as a barrier to the heat that is lost from your walls. We coat this material in a protective layer. There are several external finishes you can choose from; pebble dash, masonry, tiled, etc.

On completion we replace any external wall features that have previously been removed. External wall insulation can be applied with minimal disruption.
