External Wall Insulation Cladding For Your Home

External insulation cladding is an effective way to stop heat escaping your walls. It involves insulating the outside of your house which can be more cost-effective than internal insulation for older properties, and doesn’t reduce floor space. It can also help to improve the appearance of your property, particularly for those with solid brick homes.

EWI can be fitted to new and existing buildings, but it is most commonly used on homes built before 2006. If you have a solid wall home, there may be SEAI grants available to assist with the cost of installing a retrofit system.

Before starting an external wall insulation installation, it is important to have any structural issues resolved. Your qualified installer will identify these and let you know if they need to be done prior to work starting on site. This is because any problems with the structure of your house could increase costs later down the line if left unaddressed.

When it comes to choosing the right cladding for your home, there is a huge range of colours, finishes and textures to choose from. Some cladding even come with integrated solar panels for additional energy efficiency.

The main insulating component is typically made of expanded polystyrene (EPS) or another technology such as phenolic boards or mineral wool. We use Quinn Therm QF PIR insulation board which is a rigid thermoset foam insulation with a foil facing on each face of the insulation board to maximise performance and durability.
