Installing Solid Wall Insulation in the winter months
In the UK, we normally experience quite prolonged periods of cold weather during the winter months. This coupled with the reduced daylight really hamper the ability to install solid wall insulation during those months. The different layers within the solid wall insulation system take longer to dry and therefore this can drive up the cost of installation since the works take longer to complete.
The great news is that we can offer the EWI Pro fast drying winter mineral render system during these cooler months at no extra cost to homeowners. The system dries that much quicker than our Silicone Silicate render solid wall insulation system and therefore it allows us to carry out the install in the same time frame despite the weather being cooler and our teams being on site for shorter periods of time.
Quick Drying Adhesives & Renders!
The main component of our winter solid wall system is EWI-221, a quick drying adhesive, that offers many of the same unique qualities of our EWI-220 and EWI-225 adhesives (the ones we use normally for EPS and mineral wool respectively), except it goes off much quicker. This adhesive is incredibly strong and so we are still able to offer our 25 year warranty on our winter solid wall insulation systems.
If you have got funding via a Government scheme like GDHIF or a local borough Green Deal Community Fund then it might be a pre-requisite that you install the solid wall insulation and claim your grant by a certain time. By offering our winter system, Be Constructive can now install solid wall insulation all year around – helping people meet the strict deadlines on their grant vouchers.
