Insulated Render Solutions for Improving Existing Buildings
There is a huge stock of older domestic, commercial and industrial buildings in Cumbria and the Borders which were built in the days of cheap energy: with no thought for insulation or environmental impact! Our current reality of increasing fuel bills, and the clear and present need to reduce heat and energy losses from buildings has made insulated render systems a cost effective solution for older buildings! The added benefit of reducing associated problems such as condensation and dampness are important associated wins for tenants and owners of all buildings.
EWI insulation solutions tackle these problems by applying insulated render to external walls; finishing the job with an easily maintained, variety of attractive finishes to complete a visual and eco friendly transformation!
Tests have shown that big improvements in energy efficiency can be achieved, with some fantastic savings on energy bills. In one series of tests by the Energy Savings Trust it was concluded that a fairly typical semi-detached home could potentially save over a quarter of its current fuel costs by application of an EWI insulation system.
CJM Plastering's innovative use of the latest insulated render technology enables a visual improvement as well as a huge environmental benefit. That's even before you check your next energy bill!
