External solid wall insulation St. Albans
This is one of the best examples of how much difference, aesthetically, external solid wall insulation can make. As you can see, the brilliant white finish really smartens up the rear of this property giving it a fantastic look throughout the year, but especially in the summer sun. The previous render finish was flaking away in some places, and the tiled look on the 1st floor triangular extension was not to the home owners taste. However, while a re-rending would have solved these issues, the rooms at the rear of the property were also suffering from high heating bills and cold spots near the wall. Therefore the decision was taken to insulate as well. Using 100mm of EPS insulating board, the team at Be Constructive got the U-Value – heat loss through a solid object – of the property’s rear wall down to lower than building regulations for new builds. Not only does the customer now have a fantastic looking property, but also benefits from huge energy savings and carbon emission reductions.
The garden tap was extended, windowsills lengthened and finished off and downpipes carefully removed and reinstalled. All in all a job to be proud of and a happy customer.
Benefits of the external solid wall insulation system:
- Drastic reductions in heating bills
- Rejuvenated property look
- Weather protection
