Installation

Installation is done over various stages to complete the works. A very basic overview is as follows:

  • Firstly the walls are scrubbed with an anti fungle and any loose render removed along with drain pipes and other furniture on the walls.
  • A layer of adhesive is added and the insualtion boards are places against the walls and then pinned into place as well.
  • A basecoast is added followed by mesh to give it strength.
  • A render primer is then used to flatten and smooth the system and provide a surface for the render,
  • A choice of renders in almost any colour can be then be added for the finshed look.
  • Pipes and fittings are then added back on the wall once more.

Do you have a solid wall?

If you have solid walls, then they’re almost certainly not insulated - but the first thing you need to find out is what sort of walls you have.

If you can see the brickwork on the outside of the house, look at the pattern of the bricks as this can show how the wall has been built. If your home has solid walls, the bricks will have an alternating pattern, with some bricks laid across the wall so you can see the smaller ends from the outside.

Spray foam insulation will reduce your annual energy costs. The air-tight seal helps keep conditioned air inside the structure to reduce heat loss. As a result, you’ll spend less on heating in winter and make overall savings. An insulated home provides a more attractive choice for buyers, if you plan on selling in the future. Savings start as soon as the insulation is applied.

The Render

Renders provide a variety of choices for who you wish your home to look after the work is completed.

We would recommmend a silicon based redner as it is easier to maintain. However you can choose from almost any colour and we can mix to order. Dark greys and blacks are more expensive. You can also choose the level of textured finish too, but mostly will be 1 or 1.5 mm grit.
