The charm and character of older properties appeals to many, but chances are, if you live in a building that was built before the 1920s, it boasts a solid stone wall construction, as opposed to having cavity walls.
Whilst this may not sound like a big deal, older properties are more likely to suffer from issues with condensation and you may also find yourself paying more than you’d like to keep your home warm in the winter time. Waterproofing outside of house or houses is a way of combating this!
So what is the solution? External wall insulation (EWI) is an innovative way of waterproofing outside of house to prevent a loss of thermal quality, saving you money on your energy bills, and making your home cosier and more comfortable when it’s cold outside.
There are several ways of doing this, but we believe that our way is the most effective and efficient!
The Incredible Home Logic Wall Insulation
Did you know that heat travels faster across wet materials than dry materials? This means that wet brickwork can speed up heat loss from your home, no matter how high you crank the central heating.
Home Logic Wall Insulation is applied to your home’s exterior walls, leaving them waterproofed and reducing water absorption by up to 95%, compared to untreated walls. What’s more, the unique masonry cream also repels debris and dirt, ensuring your home’s exterior remains clean and fresh.
You can wave bye-bye to mould problems, as our product reduces microbial growth, and it comes in a wide choice of textures and colours to perfectly complement your home’s exterior. One quick application will help to trap heat more effectively in your home, protecting it from the elements all year round.
Benefits of Home Logic Wall Insulation
We already know that external wall insulation is a great choice for waterproofing the outside of a house, but what are the main benefits of Home Logic Wall Insulation? Firstly, it reduces heat loss through the walls, saving you money on energy bills and keeping your home cosier.
This also means that condensation-related problems are minimised. For those concerned about the appearance of their home’s exterior, our product protects for up to 20 years, in all weather conditions, and repels dirt for a fresh, clean façade.
If you live in the city, or near a busy road, there are other benefits too. The insulation provides a barrier against outside noise, so you can relax in peace and quiet after a long day at work – and it even improves the internal acoustics of your home.
Last but not least, Home Logic Wall Insulation is non-toxic, safe to use and environmentally friendly.
Why Do the Outside and Not the Inside?
When insulating your home, you want the whole process to be as efficient, affordable and effective as possible. Unfortunately, insulating solid walls internally can be more complex than applying external wall insulation.
You’ll need to fit insulation boards to the walls before applying insulation material and covering it with cladding or plasterboard.
The main issue here is that although thicker board means more effective insulation, thick board takes up more floor space in your home, which isn’t ideal if you are already pushed for space.
