External wall insulation

External wall insulation dramatically reduces heat loss in your home. It also reduces carbon emissions, your energy bills, and provides your home with a fresh new appearance. External wall insulation is especially suitable for hard-to-treat homes that cannot use cavity wall insulation. A substantial amount of the cost of using external wall insulation can be met by SEI grant funding of €4000.

Benefits of External Insulation include:

  • Internal living space is not lost
  • Minimal disruption to the household as the work is done on the exterior of the home
  • Provides a weatherproof, attractive and generally maintenance-free new exterior
  • Other trades such as window replacement and re-roofing can be worked on at the same time
  • Existing walls will be stabilised as they become protected from weathering
