If you live in a solid wall home, the benefits of installing external wall insulation (EWI) are wide ranging:

  • Reduced heat loss in cold weather and heat gain in warm weather
  • Reduced energy bills by up to as much as 40%
  • Reduced carbon emissions
  • Less risk of condensation and damp walls
  • Increased property curb side appeal
  • Increased property value.

The wide range of EWI systems that are available mean that there will be an appropriate solution for all homes regardless of the type and location of the property, aesthetic preference or budget. The range of coloured renders, brick effect and other specialist finishes available can also greatly improve the appearance of your home, so EWI is an opportunity which is too good to miss!

Each property will have specific requirements but a typical installation will take two to four weeks. A survey will be required prior to the commencement of works, on which a quote for the works will be based. INCA Contractors will be familiar with the requirements of the external wall insulation system to be installed, so you can rest assured the project will run as smoothly as possible. The installation will be weather dependent and INCA Contractors will provide progress updates throughout the stages of the project’s development.

INCA has developed answers to the most Frequently Asked Questions from homeowners looking to install EWI.
