With over 30 years’ experience installing external wall insulation throughout Scotland and the UK, we are one of the few approved applicators of External Insulated Render Systems for all leading system manufacturers. We carry out external wall insulation works entirely without subcontractors, ensuring control, consistency and an impeccable standard of workmanship on all projects.
Insulated render systems provide the quickest and most economical solution for increasing the thermal conductivity of a property whilst reducing condensation risks. The insulated render system allows the existing structure to retain heat better, which over time should reduce fuel consumption.
The term ‘external wall insulated render system’ refers to the installation of an insulation board bedded or dry fixed to the façade of a building, complete with render finish.
Many properties throughout Scotland and the UK have been constructed with non-traditional building methods and as such are poor at retaining heat. Installing an insulated render system is an ideal method for reducing thermal leakage, reducing carbon emissions and providing a greater insulation value to a property. In addition, applying a new decorative finish will revitalise the property, often prolonging its life expectancy. All external wall insulation systems installed by A.C. Whyte & Co. are BBA Accredited and will attract a standard manufacturer guarantee.
There are various types of insulation board that can be incorporated into a system, depending on the substructure, namely:
- Mineral Fibre
- Phenolic Insulation
- Expanded Polystyrene (EPS)
