What is External Wall Insulation?
External wall insulation is a method of upgrading the thermal performance and external appearance of existing properties.
Insulation is applied to the exterior walls along with a weatherproof rendering, to provide a protective finish that is attractive, durable and long-lasting.
A variety of different finishes are available so that you can choose a look that complements your property’s style and improves its curb appeal. As well as different colours, external wall insulation is also available in a variety of textures and patterns.

External Wall Insulation. The perfect way to transform your property into somewhere warm, energy efficient and attractive.
According to the Energy Saving Trust, we lose about one third of our home’s heat through the walls. And this figure increases even more when the walls in question are uninsulated solid walls.
Applying external wall insulation to your home’s exterior walls will add value to your property, make your home warmer, and reduce your energy bills; making it a highly cost-effective investment.
When deciding whether to install internal or external insulation to your home it’s important to weigh up the pros and cons of each. Whilst internal insulation is usually cheaper, it is also far more disruptive as the work will be going on inside your home. External insulation also provides several advantages that internal insulation does not.
- Helps you to meet the Decent Homes Standard.
- Makes the property windproof, weathertight and warm.
- Increases the thermal quality of the building to improve overall comfort.
- Particularly relevant when refurbishing non-traditional housing.
- Helps overcome damp, mould and condensation issues.
- Protects the existing building’s structure.
- Reduces heating bills by up to 35%.
- Improves the building’s appearance.
- Less disruptive as the work takes place outside the building.
- Increases the value of the property.
- Requires minimal maintenance.
- Huge choice of finishes available.
- Improves your property’s soundproofing.
Whilst external wall insulation can be an expensive home improvement, its numerous benefits make it a valuable and cost-effective investment for any property.
Keeps your home warmer – External wall insulation reduces the amount of heat escaping through your home’s walls. This means that you can heat your home faster and keep it warmer for longer to improve your overall level of comfort.
Protects the fabric of your home – External insulation totally envelopes your building to keep it warm, dry and protected from the elements. The rendering protects your house’s structure by filling in cracks in the brickwork and providing an extra, durable layer of protection.
Protects from damp, mould and moisture – The finished render is durable and breathable, preventing penetrating damp from entering your home and reducing internal condensation. The top coat of the render is 100% waterproof, providing excellent protection from the elements. Better insulation increases the temperature of your internal walls which provides better protection from mould growth.
Improves the appearance of your home – As well as giving your building’s exterior a consistent appearance by covering cracks and damaged rendering, external wall insulation is also available in a variety of attractive finishes. This makes it possible to mimic the existing façade of your home or to completely re-model it, using any of our aggregate or textured finishes.
Reduces carbon footprint – External wall insulation dramatically reduces energy loss from your home, making it more energy efficient and reducing your carbon emissions.
