External Insulation is one of the best investments you can make in your property and once complete, it will need very little, if any maintenance. It makes a very noticable difference in terms of comfort , regulation of temperature & most of all your heating bills. It will be much warmer indoors during the cold months and you’ll notice a reduction in heating costs. Also, if damp and condensation are an issue in your property, they will be a thing of the past due to the increased insulation to your home. The biggest advantage to choosing external insulation is that not only do you increase the insulation & value of your home but you also completely transform the facade of your home to a beautiful new, weather resistant external finish, customised to whatever colour you like. Don’t just take our word for it though feel free to ask anyone that has got this work done including many of our happy customers
So what exactly is External insulation?
External wall insulation is a layer of insulating blocks attached to your property with an extremely strong adhesive. This is followed by drilling these insulating blocks with very strong mushroom fixings. After this process, it is then time to mesh & basecoat everything which ties all the insulating blocks together & provides a level surface for the next steps. The next step is to prime the dried basecoat & once the primer is dry your choice of textured finish is then applied. There are multiple different systems of external wall insulation however we use Soltherm as we find it unmatched for quality & strength. We have carried out multiple projects around Cork city & Cork county so if you would like to visit these projects for ideas on colours or even to check the quality of workmanship we can organise this for you.
