” It was quite a cold house before as we are on quite an exposed corner”
This customer was able to benefit from the Green Deal Home Improvement Fund, and we installed 90mm Graphite EPS insulation with a creamy pink render to the front, side and rear elevations. Here is the beautiful finished result:
The customer commented: ‘I have had the heating on much less and the house doesn’t strike cold at all… it’s really cosy now.”
Geoff Haslam was the architect and project manager for this project, and commented: ” I was very impressed with the way your operatives worked diligently and accurately to achieve a remarkable standard of finish. Nothing was too much trouble in achieving a fully finished and well detailed result. The external insulation and render has been the most significant aspect in the transformation of this previously unloved house into a beautiful and comfortable home.”

1 – the room is definitely warmer, as you would hope! We have gone down to one small radiator and it is still warmer that it used to be. The key thing is that the room retains heat far better and warms up quicker.
2 – because the room retains it’s heat we are much more inclined to open the windows and freshen up the place – it seems like the embedded warmth in the walls means that even without heating one, once the windows are shut the room warms up.
3 – the room used to have mould growing on a few walls where there is little air circulation. This is no longer the case. There was also mould under the plasterboard that was taken down. The absence of this has got to mean better air quality.
4 – we love the lime plaster finish, the smooth texture and natural colour, and haven’t felt the need to paint it.
5 – overall it really makes the room feel much cosier and a lovely place to spend time in
We have been very pleased with the results. The loft is much warmer and the temperature tends to be more even than before: even with the radiators turned off, they never feel freezing cold in the winter.
In the two rooms below, the effect has been very noticeable. The lounge is now warm and we do not need the gas fire as supplementary heating as we did before and the humidity has dropped.It now is a pleasant room to be in. The room above, even in the winter in the late afternoon before the heating comes back on, feels OK to sit and work on the computer – it is only when the temperature outside is zero or below that it begins to feel chilly!
We have been sufficiently impressed that we hope to discuss with you whether it is worth doing the dining room, which although faces south is now the coldest room in the house!
We have not detected any condensation problems which was apparent before eg mould on the walls in corners.
