Over the Summer, we got external wall insulation put on our house, courtesy of some government funding in the area. External wall insulation is used on houses that are unsuitable for cavity wall insulation.
Here’s how it works.
First, up goes the scaffolding. Drainpipes and suchlike are removed.
Next, the insulation is put on. It’s basically big polystyrene-type blocks, screwed onto your walls.
The next step is to have it plastered.
And finally, it’s pebble-dashed to give it a nice finish. And back go your drainpipes and fittings.
As a finishing touch, we painted our front door too.
