How do you insulate a solid walled property?

Insulation for solid walled properties can be carried out on the inside (internal wall insulation) or the outside (external wall insulation) of the property.

Solid brick or stone walls will absorb heat from both inside and outside of the property during the day, acting as a heat sink.

Insulation used is generally a foam based material which acts to lower the U Value Of The Wall.

Why Are There Free Solid Wall Insulation Grants Available?

 Solid wall homes are notorious for being cold and heating costs are massive due to high U value of the walls and high celings.

The government recognise this and have earmarked funding to help these properties to achieve the maximum heat savings by offering free insulation.

will external wall insulation stop condensation

external wall insulation can External Wall Insulation can prevent future damp on walls from condensation but it won’t mask existing problems of water penetration.

If you have burst guttering, roof problems or rising damp, you must get this attended to before installation or your warranty will be void. A professional installer probably will not  take the job on anyway.

  Scaffolding is erected around your property  so  you will need to ensure taht the outside area around your home is clear .

All things attached to the walls e.g outside lights, drainpipes and satellite dishes are removed .

Insulation panels are then mechanically attached to the outside walls of your property, and then they  are weather-proofed with a coat of render.

When dry, you can paint the walls with the colour of your choice.

Usually takes a week from start to finish.
