Knauf Insulation undertook a project to internally insulate an 1890’s Victorian mid terrace property to current energy standards. The aim was to install systems that would be able to be undertaken by any competent builder to achieve an effective and efficient low energy refurbishment at a modest marginal cost over a normal refurbishment.
External Wall Insulation
The property is part of a terrace of three houses, built in the 1920s. They are of solid wall construction, with electric heating as there is no gas available in the area. The houses were cold and very expensive to heat and the lintels above the windows had perished.
When Mr and Mrs Hodges decided to insulate their 18th Century home they had just one wish; that the work was completed with the properties original appearance in mind. Their home had history attached to it locally and the couple were extremely keen to maintain the appearance as much as possible – whilst achieving the benefits external wall insulation can bring to a very cold and old home.

This privately owned property in Wolverhampton had external wall insulation installed in late 2012 to take advantage of funding and improve its thermal performance. Located on a busy residential road this house was insulated as a standalone one off property. At the initial survey stage the client made it clear that the appearance of the property must remain exactly the same. As a result a large area of the front of the property had brick slip detailing applied; as well as under the bay window.
