External wall insulation Torquay

External Wall Insulation Torquay

Here are the facts over, 30% of heat generated in an un-insulated home is lost through the walls. This is a horrible fact but there is a way to solve it. External wall insulation or EWI is the solution. EWI involves installing rigid insulation boarding to the exterior walls of a property. This creates a thermal covering that vastly reduces heat loss from the property. Once installed the insulation boards are then finished. Typical finishing consists of either a traditional lime render or perhaps a more modern render type, which is applied to the boards. This finish is hard wearing, breathable and protects the building from the effects of weather. It is important to note that EWI installation will change the look of the property to which it is installed. As such it is important that before you undertake any work, you have received the relevant planning permissions allowing you to make such changes before any works start.

Condensation Prevention

At MPC Plastering all EWI in Torquay is conducted to the highest standard, ensuring everything is professionally installed, preventing condensation. We also take great care to ensure that all recessed areas are fully covered and correctly insulated. Once of the methods we use is to match the depth of the insulation to the depth of the window frame. MPC also remove and replace any external pipe works or fittings.

Cladding or render?

The main difference between cladding and render is the price. Cladding is the cheaper option of the two. Render can be very versatile, if you are using a thin, weaker mesh then you will need to use a thick cement mix, where as if your mesh is thicker and stronger you can apply render that is of a lighter cement mix. Cladding is typically offered in a wide range of attractive colours, with a wide range of styles available such as panels, shingles and finishes such as clay, stone, brick or aluminium.
