Why Are Some Houses Poorly Insulated?

If your home struggles to keep the heat inside, external wall insulation may be an excellent option for you. Unfortunately, older buildings tend to suffer from problems such as air leakage. Air leakage increases your property’s heat loss, expenses on energy, and discomfort from draughts and lack of warmth. However, by adding an insulating layer of external fabric to these existing walls, you can eliminate air leakage by ensuring an airtight seal from the outside.

Will I need planning permission for external wall insulation?

Planning permission is not normally required if there is no change to the exterior design of the property. These types of work fall under “permitted development rights.”, and currently, EWI is classed as such.

If your Birmingham building is listed, however, or in a conservation area, you’ll likely need planning permission. We always recommend checking with your local planning authority before EWI is installed on your home.

Can I install external wall insulation myself?

Even if you are experienced with DIY, we wouldn’t recommend installing external wall insulation on your own. EWI uses complex processes, so we’d always recommend enlisting a skilled professional service for any EWI improvements carried out on your Birmingham property.
