Solid Wall Insulation successfully transformed the tired, stained exterior of this home in Bracknell to its fresh, clean look brimming with kerb appeal – while massively improving its energy efficiency.
This 3-bedroom end of terrace property is located in Great Hollands, Bracknell, Berkshire. It’s a solid brick-built house, constructed in the 1970s as part of the development of the new town of Bracknell. The street itself features a mix of flats and houses arranged as terraces around central grassed areas.
Ms L has lived here for several years and was now looking to renovate the exterior of the property. The pebble-dashed walls were cracked in places and had suffered water damage in the past. The home had been recently upgradedby installing smart new double-glazed doors and windows in dark-wood style uPVC glazing. Now she wanted to refresh the outside walls to complete the entire look.
It was also difficult to keep the house warm inside. It was inefficient to run, and turning up the heating meant high energy bills.
The insulation installed significantly reduces the amount of heat lost through the walls of a property, while the smooth layer of fresh render applied weatherproofs and completes the wall refurbishment.
The work took place in September 2019 and the complete installation time for this Solid Wall insulation project was just over a week. This was a little longer than usual as the top coating had to be delayed due to a period of rather heavy rain.
Unique features of the property were taken into account ensuring oversills were matched to the new style glazing. “Stunning” says the homeowner. And the all-round benefits of Solid Wall insulation can be appreciated both inside and out, as Ms L explains, “I now have a stunning looking house which is very warm and cosy. This will save me huge costs in gas and energy.”
