WHAT IS INTERNAL WALL INSULATION?

CHOOSE TO SUIT YOUR NEEDS

   A big advantage to internal wall insulation is that it’s versatile. When you fit it you can choose between two options, which lets you pick the best type for your home.

   If you want to keep your walls as thin as possible, you can fit insulation boards. These are usually made of plasterboard backed with foamed plastic, which is 6-10cm thick.

   Or if you have an uneven wall you can build a stud wall in front of it. This involves building a metal or wooden studwork frame, filling it in with mineral wool fibre and then plastering over the top.

CAN BE DISRUPTIVE

It’s worth noting that many customers find internal insulation to be quite disruptive and you will need to factor this into your decision making.

Our team will need to remove all wall fittings to get access to the wall and carry out the work. This includes;

  • Skirting boards

  • Switches

  • Shelving

  • Plugs

For safety you won’t be able to use the room whilst insulation is being fitted to its walls. If you have any concerns our team will be able to advise you further on the installation process and timelines
