External Wall Insulation (EWI)
Research has shown that 35% of a building’s energy can be lost through external walls, even more if the wall is weathered or cracked – a fact that most people never consider.
An External Wall Insulation (EWI) render system will cover your building with a waterproof barrier, one that will give you all-year-round protection, helping to keep your precious energy inside. Due to it being a through colour product, it also requires no maintenance.
A typical insulated render system includes the attachment of insulation boards to the existing substrate using mechanical fixings, sometimes accompanied by adhesive. This is followed by a flexible and fully breathable basecoat which has reinforcing mesh trowelled throughout the entire surface, to prevent cracking and the fitting of rust-free plastic beading. To finish, we apply a final coat which is maintenance-free, and both the colour and decorative finish can be chosen.
The design and installation of an insulated render system is a specialist job. The construction techniques remain the same, but the systems differ through their use of components such as the thickness and type of insulation, and the render finishes available.
Quality has and always will be a major factor in who we decide to partner with.
