External wall insulation can improve the thermal and sound insulation qualities of your home, reduce your energy usage and significantly lower your carbon footprint. In the majority of cases, it is a wise idea to insulate the outside of your property, as it can bring many cost-saving benefits.

But are you worried about potential external wall insulation problems? Have a read of this page, and see if we can answer your questions, and settle any doubts.

Why Would You Consider External Wall Insulation?

There are many reasons why you might choose to insulate your outer-walls. One main reason is if your property possesses solid walls instead of cavity walls.

This is common in properties that were built before the 1990s. If you have solid walls then unfortunately you are restricted to internal/external insulation, and, therefore, this is your only consideration.

Internal insulation methods will take up some of your internal floor space, and most people don’t have enough space inside their homes as it is!

Plus, you do not obtain the same levels of thermal efficiency with internal insulation, as external insulation literally wraps the house up like a jacket around your body.

This will also help to minimise cold bridging – which is the transfer of cold air through your solid wall’s brickwork. The gap between a cavity wall’s inner and outer shell helps to prevent cold-bridging, but a solid wall does not contain this gap.

Overall, it’s a great way of renewing the image of your home, whilst also boosting its thermal qualities.

Potential External Wall Insulation Problems

Still worried about potential external wall insulation problems?

In truth, the biggest drawback of external insulation is the cost. The initial outlay can be expensive, especially when compared to internal insulation methods.

But when you consider the amount of savings throughout the years, on energy bills and possible future renovation costs, you may end up actually saving more than you spend. Other potential external wall insulation problems may include:

  • The need for planning permission in some cases
  • Rejection from listed buildings and properties in conservation areas
  • Window trickle vent problems (only if left uncovered before application)

All down pipes, entry points and other projections should have been dealt with beforehand by a competent and professional team of insulation specialists.
