There are 3 types of wall insulation that you could consider for your home:
- Internal Wall Insulation
Internal Wall Insulation is the process of adding extra insulated lining on the inside of the walls in your home. This is then covered with smooth plasterboard to give a stylish modern look.
2. Cavity Wall Insulation
In many homes around Ireland there are two rows of brick in each wall with a gap, or ‘cavity’, in between them. Cavity Wall Insulation involves filling these gaps with a polystyrene material. The ease and effectiveness of this solution makes it very popular.
3. External Wall Insulation
External Wall Insulation is the god standard solution. It’s also the most expensive. Commonly known as ‘the wrap’, this solution involves coating the outer layer of your walls with insulation material. This is then covered and made weather proof. Typically this type of solution will be implemented as part of a large retrofit project.
