Why Insulate your Solid Walls?
If your home is not properly insulated you could be losing 35% of your heat through your walls and according to the Energy Savings Trust paying an extra £400 towards your yearly utility bills as a result. Not only can installing Solid Wall Insulation on your property save you money, it can also dramatically improve the look of your home.

In our time serving the Southwell area, our solid insulation Southwell team have used a number of internal and external products, so it is important that we understand your needs and your properties needs before work starts. Therefore we have an initial, free, consultation either over the phone or via email in the first instance, and we will give you the options and assist you in making an informed choice of what the best solution is for you.
All products we use are fully compliant with all the latest safety regulations. So you can have peace of mind that the best and safest products are helping you to reduce costs and help the environment
After the initial conversation we will progress to a survey on your property in Southwell where we can assess your properties suitability for the different products and also give you a guideline for price and any solid wall insulation grants that are available. We will then arrange the work at a suitable date.
Example process – case study
For external solid wall insulation an option is a board and render solution. The example below is using Permarock.
Initially the walls are smoothed down and then tested for how many fixings are required. We then fix the boards to your walls – these are the insulants and will be the main contributor to your savings of up to £400 a year.
There is then an application of render on top of a mesh to make the boards fix and apply the correct strength / resilience to the wall. All window sills and external fittings, eg Satellite dishes, are adjusted to fit.
Finally we apply a top coat or finish – available in a range of colours and styles – to give your home a fantastic, stylish new look.
This example shows how your properties appearance and efficiency can be transformed during this process, with U values improving to .32 on average. This can be varied using different board thickness’s.
We are able to source and access other solutions both internally and externally. Contact our Solid Wall Insulation team via the right hand side of this page to find out more.
