A property in need – to a property indeed
This property in Uxbridge was not only looking a bit dejected, after years of weathering and general wear and tear had taken its toll, but was also wasting the occupier money because of it being constructed using a single skin of solid brick, which is terrible at containing the heat produced by the central heating system.
The occupant often had to have his heating thermostat set in the 20’s, yet still felt cold. The answer was to apply and install 100mm of EPS with strengthening render to maintain the property’s heat as well as protect the property’s construction from the elements. The EPS is a fantastic insulator, which should help save the customer around £300 per year as well as dramatically increasing comfort. He need hardly put the heating on at all now, as his sides are party walls with his neighbours and the front and back of his property is extensively insulated to levels better than the regulations for current building regulations.
An excellent finish to your solid wall insulation
As this property is a mid-terrace, only the front and back were insulated. As you can see at the back, the rejuvenated look is obvious as you can compare it with the next door property. The windows were also finished off cleanly around the new cills and the vents were extended to maintain a sufficient level of ventilation. At the roofline, the insulation was expertly finished within the soffit, which means it is safe from moisture build up. Downpipes and security lights were also carefully reattached.
