What is External Wall Insulation?

External Wall Insulation is a form of insulation fixed to the exterior of an existing or new dwelling. The high performance insulation slab is then rendered to give a protective and decorative coating to the existing façade.

Around a third of all heat lost in an un-insulated home is lost through the walls. External Wall Insulation is one of the most effective ways to reduce the amount of energy needed to heat a home.

The feedback we recieve from customers who have installed EWI is that it has totally tranformed their living conditions and the appearence of their home.  We provide all insulation options such as cavity fill and dry lining but the positive response we reciece  from EWI customers totally over shadows the other forms of insulation.   

 KEY BENEFITS

√ Saves money: Save around €500 per year on energy bills.

√ Great for the environment: Save around 2.5 tonnes of CO2 a year.

√ Increase longevity: Extends lifespan of the building.

√ Improve appearance: Significantly improve the appearance of the building.

Fixing external wall insulation material

EWI is an insulation solution we provide were the external walls of a dwelling are solid or consist of hollow block construction and therefore cannot be insulated by conventional methods such as cavity fill. Poorly insulated structures cost more to heat and suffer condensation problems and little or no heat is stored within the property. For a relatively small outlay your house not only becomes warmer, it also looks like a new house.

Cost of maintenance free external wall insulation

As with good normal building maintenance, checks are required on movement of joints and general building maintenance is advised to ensure longevity and performance of the system. All of the systems are designed to be virtually maintenance-free; in particular acrylic finishes offer self cleansing properties. The high performance insulation slab is then rendered to give a protective and decorative coating to the existing façade.

External wall insulation improves thermal performance and energy efficiency

The challenge was to find a cost effective solution for a 3 bed, end terrace semi with poor thermal insulation values, without the need for decamping or significant disruption to the tenant and their family. The existing structure was a hollow block property with existing sand and cement render finish and a brick front façade exhibiting poor thermal performance problems for the tenant. The client was a family in Duleek Co Meath.
