DIY external solid wall insulation is becoming increasingly popular across the UK. The majority of properties built in the UK are constructed using solid brick. This means that they leak heat at a rapid rate. If your house has no cavity to fill with insulation, it doesn’t mean that the walls can’t be improved.
External solid wall insulation involves adding 100mm of EPS (120mm of mineral wool) to the outside of the property, using both mechanical fixings and adhesive, with a layer of render over the top. This provides the property with an external layer that not only provides the home with insulation but also protection against the elements, which prolongs the building’s lifespan. Popular external wall insulation materials can be insulated by EPS, mineral wool and wood fibre.
The U-Value (heat transfer through a substance) of a solid brick wall property built in the 1920s is around 2.7-3 W/m2k. Installing 100mm of our external solid wall insulation system can bring it down to better than current building regulations, at 0.28 W/m2k.
