External wall insulation versus internal wall insulation

Choosing between external wall insulation versus internal wall insulation is one of the most important decisions you can make in your home. We are specialists and recommend that you insulate your house from the outside if you want to avoid condensation and mould.

External wall insulation acts as a protective barrier for heat. It allows it to reach, heat up the walls and then return to the inside. This heating process ensures that the bricks do not freeze in the cold and do not deteriorate.

If you decide to insulate your house from the inside you lose space because it is necessary to apply a layer on all surfaces that are in contact with the outside. You will lose space, approximately 10 cm. It doesn’t matter if you use a rigid insulation board or build a stud wall.

Do you still have doubts between external wall insulation versus internal wall insulation?

The process to insulate the exterior wall consists of placing a layer of adhesive base, then fiberglass mesh to give strength and flexibility. Then we apply the primer in the colour of your choice. And finally, add a top coat of silicone.

We can choose soft, textured, mosaic, sprayed or brick finishes. That will give the house waterproof, improve its appearance and give it durability. It is also an opportunity to fix holes or damages.

Insulating your walls is a great way to make your home more energy efficient. And now it is cheaper because the Government offers a grant to make your house greener.

A poorly insulated house loses 30% of its energy, about 300 pounds a year. There is a measure that calculates the effectiveness of insulation work, the R-value. And, of course, we work with high quality materials that ensure the results for your house now and in the future.
