Fact: 30 – 35% of heat in a home is lost through the walls, that is the walls that are exposed to the outside elements only.
In your typical semi- detached house, walls losing heat would be front walls, back walls and side gable of property. These are the walls we have to consider when assessing insulation levels, the internal wall within the home do not need to be insulated – no heat loss.
Internal wall insulation is a method where an insulation material is fixed to the exposed walls internally. The method and material used can vary between properties and even vary from room to room, and only after initial survey and assessment can this be determined.
In general walls to be insulated are solid walls, and therefore insulation can be fixed directly to wall mechanically or adhesively. The material used is a composite board, consisting of a vapour barrier, the insulation material and then plaster board.
Skirting boards, window boards, radiators and any electrical sockets are removed. Our insulation material is then fixed to the wall. The wall is plastered to a skim coat finish and we seal down the joints were it meets the internal wall. We re-instate skirtings, new wider window board, radiator and any electrics etc as required.
New insulated wall is left ready for decorating with complete job is left clean and tidy by our experience team who work to a strict code of practice when undertaking internal wall insulation.
