One of the trends that is growing swiftly among architects is installing external wall insulation. Why is this a trend? It allows architects options with renovations that would not be possible otherwise. At Plastering Redbridge, we recognise how vital external wall insulation is not only to home renovations but to new builds and extensions as well. Here are just a few of the reasons why architects favour external wall insulation.
A new build, extension or renovation can be functional, but if it lacks an attractive appearance, it is unlikely anyone will want to buy your property in the future. When the installation of external wall insulation is completed, it is covered with a decorative finish such as a render or a silicone or acrylic paint. These techniques are quite useful when covering faded and cracked brick. A house can go from being unsightly to the best looking in the neighbourhood. Clearly, an architect wants to be recognised for homes that are pleasing to the eye, hence why they use external wall insulation. If your house has degrading brick or cracked plaster, external wall insulation can dramatically improve its appearance.
External wall insulation not only improves the look of a home, it insulates a property as well. Architects know that external wall insulation means lower power bills both in the winter and summer months. If you can never seem to get your home to keep warm enough in the winter or cool enough during the summer months external wall insulation may the answer. Initial invest in EWI could help towards savings from your lower power bills.
A Comfortable Home
If you are in a house with inadequate insulation, you have likely noticed how damp it can be in the winter months. This dampness can cause mould growth which can invade your respiratory system, aggravate arthritis, and cause wallpaper to come unstuck. Installing external wall insulation can effectively keep your home dry.
A Noise Barrier
Is your house located on a busy street? Can you hear every lorry that comes down your road well in advance of it passing by your home? Do you have noisy neighbours in the house next to yours? The good news is that external wall insulation can serve as a noise barrier to the clamour outside, letting you rest easy.
When an architect uses external wall insulation on a new build or extension it future proofs the construction from any new regulations. There may be regulations that require a home not to exceed a certain amount of power consumption. Adding external wall insulation to your home can help you from having to make a change to your home from any new mandates. You also increase the value of your house when you add external wall insulation by making it ready for the future.
