Using different elements from different EWI systems
At Be Constructive we install lots of different solid wall insulation systems from different manufacturers, from EWI-pro, Insta to Sto – they all have their merits.
What is becoming clear though is that companies are using different elements from different solid wall insulations to carry out jobs, so for example the primers come from one manufacturer, while the renders come from EWI Pro. Remember, these systems have been developed and refined by the manufactures to work together providing you with a great energy saving, protective layer on your home.
Why are installers using different elements from different systems?
Well the main reason is price – as the industry has grown (and the Government backed Green Deal Home Improvement scheme has really helped with this) more companies have entered the market. This has brought some huge benefits to the industry because gone are the days that companies can charge through the nose for works to be carried out. Once example of this is a customer we had that originally received a quote for solid wall insulation 18 months ago for £27000 for just 100m2 of wall, we carried out this job for just under £10,000 which when you included the £6,000 grant took the final cost to the customer to just over £4,000. Obviously this is a good thing – more competition means that these uncompetitive suppliers will be history in the near future!
