  • What types of building can benefit from external wall insulation?

Solid masonry, concrete and brick built buildings pre 1972 will generally profit from External Wall Insulation.

We start with the first layer of whichever material is deemed more appropriate for the type of building, then progress to the outer layer which will be a render.

These renders have a mesh which has fibre re-enforcement, and is applied using a base coat, pre bagged.

The customer can choose from a wide range of colours and specialised finishes, from a highly vibrant colour, to a more sedate pastel colour.


  • Commitment to quality

  • How Heat is lost through walls

In the past, houses and buildings were built to a very different standard than they are built today.

Solid walls have no gap, so they can’t be filled with cavity wall insulation.

There is a fix for this type of heat loss.


  • External Wall Insulation

will not only stop this valuable heat from being lost, but just as importantly, save you money.

There are many different different colours and finishes available.
