Installing External Wall Insulation

Improve your energy efficiency External Wall Insulation*

External wall insulation is one of the many energy efficiency measures you can have installed, to save money on your household fuel bills and use less energy.

This method is a huge benefit to homes with solid walls which are unable to benefit from cavity wall insulation. This is installed by attaching a thermal layer to the existing external walls and then finished with a render or decorative cladding to protect it from the wind and rain.

What are the benefits of insulation?

  • It reduces heat loss and energy bills
  • Soundproofing from outside noise
  • Could increase the value of the property
  • It increases the life of the wall
  • Can reduce condensation on internal walls if fitted correctly

Are grants available for external wall insulation?

There is likely to be funding available through the government backed energy efficiency scheme, known as the Energy Company Obligation (ECO). This is an obligation placed by the government on to the energy companies, to provide funding for qualifying householders for energy-saving measures such as external wall insulation. You may also be able to claim a contribution or even a complete external wall insulation grant via this scheme.  External wall insulation will be one of the key measures available through the next phase of this scheme, ECO4, expected to commence in the next couple of months.  Contact us to see if you qualify.

Frequently asked questions

Please read the frequently asked questions from our customers below

How much does it cost to externally insulate a wall?

Without a prior home assessment, it’s difficult to estimate costs due to a number of factors; the condition of the wall, height of the wall (scaffolding requirements) and also the type of insulation material that is recommended for your wall.

Another consideration is building regulations.

Do I need planning permission for external wall insulation?

It’s quite possible you would need to apply for planning permission if the external insulation alters the appearance of your home. Our surveyors can advise when they assess your home. You can also contact your local authority for further information.
