Don’t have a wall cavity? External wall insulation is the best alternative! For solid walls, there are ideally two ways to insulate them.
Internal wall insulation: Internal wall insulation is applied to the inner surface of the main exterior of walls. Typically, this is more cost-effective, but of course, it has some limitations.
External wall insulation: External wall insulation is the process of adding insulation to an already-existing wall. For weather protection, the wall is usually completed with render or another type of cladding.
External wall insulation works wonders to improve the thermal efficiency of dwellings with solid walls.

Advantages of Insulating the Outside of the Walls

External Wall Insulation Cost

A three-bedroom semi-detached house costs between £5,000 and £9,000. A bigger separate home, on the other hand, might cost between £8,000 and £15,000. In addition, you can't avoid the extra costs that come up when pipes and wires need to be lifted or replaced. When you want to get the best U value for your wall, it's smart to split the needed insulation thickness between cavity-fill and external ways.

Benefits of External Wall Insulation

Lack of wall cavity

Lack of a Wall Cavity

Many older homes don't have a wall cavity, which makes it harder to insulate. If you don't have a cavity, you can't use traditional ways like cavity wall insulation. Berks Insulation offers expert solutions like external wall insulation, designed specifically for houses without cavities.

Loose floor external wall insulation

Don't Lose Floor Space

To insulate internally, you have to put things on the inside of the outside walls, which takes up floor space. Building a wood frame, putting in rigid foam insulation, adding a vapour barrier, and ending with a plasterboard are all parts of this process. As time passes, the Build-up could cause you to lose 100–150 mm of floor space, which is a big problem, especially in homes with smaller rooms.

Protection against weathering

Protection Against Weathering

External wall insulation acts as a protective layer, shielding your home from the impact of weather elements. This can prolong the life of your building's exterior & interior and reduce maintenance costs.

Insulating External wall

Reduction in cold bridging

Cold bridges are less likely to happen when insulation is placed outside the home. Spreading a thick layer of insulation around the house creates a shield that keeps cold air away from the stone walls. Putting this on your house is like putting on a coat; it covers everything.

If you want to keep cold from coming in through solid walls, you should try to minimize cold bridging. Building with masonry conducts heat efficiently, meaning chilly temperatures can easily sneak through and make your home uncomfortably drafty. This is where minimizing cold bridging comes in. By addressing these weak points, you can keep the warmth in and the cold out, making your home more comfortable and energy-efficient.
