External Wall Insulation in Traditional Buildings

Author(s): NDM Heath Ltd

Insulating solid walls has become a considerable focus in recent years, particularly with the introduction of The Green Deal and other schemes which place an emphasis on the thermal retrofit of traditional solid walled houses. Given the technical risks associated with insulating walls internally, external insulation is often an option worth considering, where aesthetics allow. However there are various considerations that need to be addressed and further research is needed to gain a fuller understanding of these. This report provides an overview of three recently completed external wall insulation projects in three towns of Northern England: Liverpool, Blackpool and Stockton-on-Tees.
