Weber, leading manufacturer for the facades, construction mortars, flooring systems and tile fixing markets, has introduced a comprehensive Guide to external wall insulation (EWI) systems for the refurbishment market.

Designed specifically to greatly enhance the thermal performance of solid wall, non-traditional housing and improve aesthetics – Weber EWI systems make the process of renovation of these so-called ‘hard to treat’ homes quick and easy. “This Guide provides important information on tackling one of the most important issues facing our existing housing stock,” says Mark Weaver, Marketing Manager, Weber. “Of the UK’s housing inventory, over 30% have been built with solid walls and cannot be thermally improved with the use of cavity wall insulation.” Unfilled cavity wall homes lose around 35% of heat through their walls while solid wall homes will lose as much as 45% through the untreated envelope.

Weber external wall insulation systems are suitable for both traditional and non-traditional solid wall housing and can significantly reduce heat loss leading to lower heating bills and carbon emissions. As well as improving thermal efficiency Weber EWI systems will, at the same time, revitalise the appearance of homes and can be major contributors to the regeneration of run-down housing schemes. Other benefits include no impact on the internal living space as the system is applied to the external face, at the same time minimising disruption to the householder and eliminating the risk of condensation. The attractive and weather proof exterior is generally maintenance free and work can be carried out alongside other trades such as window replacement and re-roofing.

Upgrading solid wall properties with EWI has progressed under the Decent Homes programme and the recently announced Community Energy Saving Programme (CESP) which targets solid wall insulation and will provide project funding to the most deprived communities.

 Information on the repair of concrete structures – which is frequently required before external remedial work can commence - is also detailed in the Guide with the appropriate Weber concrete repair and protection materials.
