What is External Insulation?

External wall insulation is a composite cladding system comprised of suitable insulation and waterproof coating which is applied to all the external wall of a building. External Insulation is the simplest and easiest way of thermally upgrading home insulation in Ireland without a massive disruption as all works can be carried out whilst the occupants are living in the properties.
