Social, Landlords & Housing Associations
External wall insulation (EWI) is a cost-effective, high-quality solution to upgrading and refurbishing housing stock, giving new life to buildings and improving quality-of-life for those who live and work in them.
At Gaffney & Guinan, we can cater our external wall insulation (EWI) services to a variety of building styles. For example, the buildings we work on can range from single to multi-storey. Furthermore, we work with a variety of construction materials. Some examples of the materials we use include concrete, steel and timber-framed. So, you can rest assured our solutions will suit even the most challenging of structures.
EWI is invariably the most cost-effective way of bringing older buildings such as concrete construction tower-blocks, which housing associations are currently made of, into line with current energy-conservation standards.
As well as reducing potential problems with cold, noise and damp, EWI can play a major part in improving the quality of life for residents and helping to regenerate whole neighbourhoods.
Extending the life-span of the building stock, cutting maintenance bills and adding value with Gaffney & Guinan EWI solutions makes this one of the most sensible long-term investments that any housing association or landlord can make.
By renovating and insulating their property externals landlords can increase the value of their housing stock, cut energy bills by up to 40% and make a very positive impact on the quality of life for their tenants. In our experience, this helps reduce turnover and cuts down on void periods.
