How does External Wall insulation work?

The Process starts with a full survey of your property to ensure it is suitable, and select the appropriate system for your requirements.
External wall insulation involves fixing a layer of insulation material to the wall, then covering it with a reinforcement and a special type of render. The finish is usually a textured render, pebble-dash or sometimes a brick slip or a brick effect render finish could be used.

These finishes can be used alone, or in a combination so that considerable variety in the appearance of the treated wall can be achieved.
