External wall insulation Barking
On this property, the customer was keen to get solid wall insulation installed despite the face the ground floor of the property was actually cavity wall construction. The process for installing solid wall insulation on cavity walls is broadly the same as our normal insulation process except the mechanical fixings are slightly longer to ensure they hold within the internal skin of brick. The solid wall insulation stops penetrating damp in its tracks. This is one of the major advantages that it has over cavity wall insulation – but also it is far thicker than most cavities, therefore the insulating impact of solid wall insulation is significantly higher than cavity wall insulation.
The homeowner was also keen to update his porch to a more simple, sleek design so we worked with him to choose the right porch for this house and then we installed it accordingly on the solid wall insulation system to minimise thermal bridging.
