One of the key properties of heat is that it always moves from a warmer area to a colder one. During colder temperatures, heat escapes quickly putting more pressure on your heating system and adding to your energy cost. If your home has solid walls (single layer), the heat will move even faster than it would through cavity walls (two layers with a gap in between).
There are two ways to insulate solid walls, externally or internally. Both consist of lining the wall with suitable materials, which slow the flight of heat. Internal lining consists of applying rigid insulation boards or something called a stud wall. Both require re-plastering and painting of your internal walls so this choice is particularly appropriate if you are planning to renovate your home.
External insulation consists of applying a layer of insulation material to the external walls of your home and keeping it in place with strong adhesive and mechanical tools. It will then be rendered with plaster or cladding. The new external walls will have a different appearance and planning commission approval may be required before execution. Our team of experts will manage all these variables and provide you with an optimal solution for your home.
