Understanding the Benefits and Process of External Insulation for Your Home


At CKF we specialize in transforming homes into energy-efficient havens. In this blog, we'll explore the benefits of external insulation and how it's a smart investment for your home in Ireland.

Why External Insulation Matters:

The Process of External Insulation:

  1. Assessment: We start by assessing your home's specific needs, considering wall types, and potential impacts on the roof, windows, and doors​​.

  2. Choosing the Right Material: Our team uses approved External Thermal Insulating Composite Systems (ETICS), which involve fixing materials like expanded polystyrene slabs or mineral wool to the exterior walls​​.

  3. Installation: A base coat with reinforcing fiberglass mesh is applied, followed by a finishing render for weather resistance​​.

  4. Attention to Detail: We ensure that all aspects, including ventilation and services, are taken into account to maintain the health and safety of your home​​.

Comprehensive Services:

  • Wall Insulation Types: We offer cavity, external, and internal wall insulation, ensuring the most effective method for your home​​​​.

  • Additional Insulation Solutions: Besides walls, we also insulate attics, floors, and provide window and door upgrades, offering a holistic approach to your home's energy efficiency​​​​.

Benefits Beyond Energy Savings:

  • Environmental Impact: By reducing energy usage, external insulation contributes to lower greenhouse gas emissions​​.

  • Healthier Living Space: Proper insulation leads to a healthier home environment, free from issues like condensation and mold​​.
