What is external wall insulation?

External wall insulation is the perfect solution if you are looking to improve your home's energy performance and minimise heat leakage. It is available in a wide variety of colours, which can make your home look completely refreshed while reducing your energy bills.

What are the benefits of external wall insulation?

  • External wall insulation can be applied with minimal disruption.
  • It will not reduce the floor space of your property.
  • External wall insulation upgrades the appearance of your outer walls.
  • By protecting your property's brickwork, the lifespan of your walls will be increased.
  • External wall insulation will save energy and reduce the cost of your heating bill.

How is external wall insulation installed?

A layer of insulation is mechanically fixed to the exterior wall of the property. This layer is applied to the entire envelope of the building in order to prevent heat loss and thermal bridging.

A weave fibre mesh is then embedded onto the insulation before being covered with a durable finish to withstand the weather and waterproof exterior of the property. When that is complete a render is applied.

You can then choose from a variety of different finishes, including textured, painted, pebble-dashed, panelled and smooth, in a variety of colours. This is a non-intrusive procedure and will help prevent damp and condensation on the property's internal walls.

What is the cost of external wall insulation?

The cost of retrofitting external wall insulation varies from property to property depending on many factors, but there is an SEAI Grant of up to €6,000 available to assist with the cost of the installation.
