External Wall Insulation (EWI)
Improving a building's energy performance is a fundamental part of the ongoing changes to the Building Regulations. Installing an EWI system provides a means to achieving this, whilst also giving an opportunity to improve and modernise the external appearance of a building.
EWI involves applying a layer of insulation to facades, then covering them with one of a number of aesthetically pleasing speciality renders or cladding. EWI is extremely versatile and can be applied to nearly all substrate types.
EWI offers the following benefits:
Insulates external walls to produce the desired U-value without risk of condensation
Provides a decorative and protective external envelope, giving lasting weather performance and extending the life of the building
Meets the need for improved thermal performance required by Government and changes in Building Regulations during refurbishment
Helps to reduce general maintenance costs
Upgrades run down housing stock in inner city areas, creating low-carbon communities and contributing to improvements in social welfare
Gunite also repairs and replaces pre-cast concrete cladding panels.
Internal Wall Insulation (IWI)
Gunite can supply and fit both rigid insulation board and stud wall IWI in hard to heat homes where the historic, listed status or aesthetic preferences make EWI application inappropriate.
There are many advantages to installing IWI and we are happy to discuss these with you. We can assess the condition of your existing indoor walls and will consider whether support is required for any heavy fixtures, providing you with guidance and advice on the suitability of IWI compared with EWI.
