If your home was built before the 1920s, it is possible that its exterior walls are solid walls. Although having “solid” walls may seem advantageous, these walls differ from modern cavity walls in that they allow heat to escape through them. Therefore, to retain heat, save money on your heating expenses and reduce your carbon dioxide emissions, you may wish to consider insulating them. Visit Depend Exteriors.
Many advantages are offered by exterior wall insulation. Not only will you save as much as £ 490 per year on your heating costs, but without interrupting the interior of your home, your insulation will be installed. Your insulation will improve the appearance of your home and safeguard your brickwork if your exterior walls are ageing. In your brickwork, it will also fill in any cracks, therefore eliminating any draughts they cause. With the help of mechanical fixtures and adhesives, a layer of insulation material is fixed to your walls in order to insulate solid exterior walls. Once this material is in place, it is covered with protective rendering or cladding layers.
A variety of attractive colours and shapes, including timber panels, shingles, stones, clay tiles and aluminium panels, are available for cladding. On the other hand, rendering takes the form of a dense mixture of sand and cement that is applied over a wire mesh, or a thinner, lighter cement that is applied over a strong fibre mesh.The finish might be smooth or textured, depending on your preferences. You can choose to paint or pebble-dash the surface, if you want easy maintenance of your exterior walls. Your chosen finish, including your existing brickwork, will cover the whole of the outside of your property and may significantly change the appearance of your home. For this reason, with the greatest of care, you should choose your finish.
