Insulated exterior cladding can make your outside house insulation more energy efficient, which can save you money on your electricity bills in the long run. It can also help reduce the amount of heat that is lost from your home, keeping it warmer in winter and making it more comfortable to live in.

It can also be a great way to improve your home’s sound insulation, meaning that it will be quieter inside, helping you to sleep better at night and relax in peace. It can also protect your property from damp, which is a common issue with older properties and can lead to serious health issues including respiratory problems and asthma.

An insulated cladding system can be very effective at reducing dampness in the home, provided that it is installed correctly. This includes accurate detailing at junctions where the cladding meets the frame, and particularly around windows to avoid thermal bridging. It is also important to ensure that the cladding is designed to deflect rain, ice and snow away from the building.

Cracking the Code of External Solid Wall Insulation: Solutions for Energy Efficiency

The most commonly used insulated cladding systems are EIFS (Exterior Insulation and Finish Systems) or PIR (polyisocyanurate) metal-faced panels, both of which have good insulation values and are available in a wide range of colours and textures to suit traditional, contemporary and modern styles of building. They can be combined with a variety of different masonry, brick and block, stone and timber cladding to achieve the desired architectural look. They are also highly durable and fire resistant according to NFPA 285 and 2021 IBC Section 1403.5.
