The homeowner complained of the upstairs front bedrooms being ‘’absolutely freezing in winter,” The front of the houses in this particular area are traditionally tile-hung, and that was the problem.
Insta surveyed the house and identified the tiles on the front elevation of the house were hung onto breeze blocks – so the whole of the front wall was a single skin and effectively leaking heat. The recommendation was to strip off all the tiles at the front of the house, then to install solid wall insulation to solve the problem.
InstaClad Robust was recommended In this particular home, the panel system was applied directly on to the external wall surface. Once this was complete and waterproofed, it was rendered in the colour of the homeowner’s choice.
When the installation was complete, the house front looked like new, with a modern, clean appearance. “It’s completely transformed the visual appeal of our property, as well as giving us a warm, cosy, protective layer.’’ The work took approximately two weeks.
Installing effective insulation alongside the double glazing and previous improvements has completed the ‘thermal blanket’, delivering a full solution against heat loss.
