External Wall Insulation

Insulating outer walls requires several processes in order to prove successful and create an overall long-term financial gain. To begin with it is recommended always that firstly an inspection be undertook to consider the correct insulation material for the property. Once complete the work can begin and does so with the insulation material layer being fitted and fixed to the walls. The fixing process uses both mechanics and adhesive tools. The fixings will be covered with layers of protection; most commonly cladding.

The finishing process comes next and can be however you wish it to be as long as it falls in line with the recommended advice from the inspection. This is important in order to achieve the highest effectiveness level from the implemented insulation. Finishes can be smooth, tiled, paneled or painted to provide the ideal touches. The finish will cover the entire exterior of the home and it is important to consider this when contemplating outer wall insulation. This process will require the finish to cover pre-existing brickwork, therefore changing the properties appearance from the exterior. Alongside the aesthetic factors it will also be necessary to check on any planning permission issues as well.

The aforementioned cladding used for the protection layers of the fixing is available in a variety of forms. This often gives homeowner's a wide selection range in terms of aesthetics once again; examples include timer, shingles and brick finish. An alternative option is render. This can also come in several forms, these being sand and cement for a thick layer or a thinner option of lighter cement alongside fibre mesh.


I would like to take this opportunity as chairman of the Friends of Brooklands to say how grateful we are that you have undertaken these works in our community. I would also like to add how already the very tidy appearance of so many of the proprieties is beginning to enhance our environment.
