External Wall Insulation

Go2 External Wall Insulation

External wall insulation (EWI) refers to the process of insulating the exterior walls of a building to improve its energy efficiency and thermal performance. EWI involves applying an insulating material to the outside of the building and covering it with a weatherproof render or cladding system.

The benefits of external wall insulation include:

Improved thermal performance: EWI helps to reduce heat loss from the building, keeping it warmer in winter and cooler in summer. This can lead to energy savings and lower heating bills.

Enhanced energy efficiency: By reducing heat loss, EWI helps buildings become more energy-efficient and environmentally friendly.

Condensation prevention: EWI can help to prevent condensation on internal walls, reducing the risk of damp and mould issues.

Enhanced appearance: This can give buildings a fresh and updated look, as various finishes and colours are available for the render or cladding.

Increased property value: Improved energy efficiency and a better appearance can increase the value of the property.

The process

The process of installing external wall insulation typically involves the following steps:

Preparation: The walls are thoroughly cleaned and any existing surface finishes are removed.

Application of insulation: The chosen insulation material is fixed to the walls using adhesive or mechanical fixings.

Reinforcement: A layer of reinforcement mesh is applied over the insulation to provide additional strength and stability.

Rendering or cladding: A weather-resistant render or cladding system is applied to protect the insulation and give the building a finished appearance.

Enhancing your property’s energy efficiency and appearance can be cost-effective with this type of Insulation. To ensure proper application and performance, it’s crucial to rely on the expertise of a professional and qualified installer.
