Insulation of external walls – an ideal way to insulate a building

Insulation of external walls insulate a is very common in recent years, and high-quality reinforcing materials provide excellent protection for the building against moisture penetration. Why is it better to bet on external than internal insulation and what are the benefits of choosing this insulation system?

Real estate insulation is one of the main elements when planning renovation and refreshing the facade, which brings many benefits. Apart from insulating the building itself, the walls covered with appropriate insulation material do not absorb moisture, thanks to which the risk of mold and mold multiplying significantly decreases. Non-absorb up to 45% of heat, which is why the lack of insulated walls insulation of external walls can contribute to the generation of higher and higher costs of maintaining a property. By choosing the installation of insulation, we not only gain excellent protection against moisture or additional heat, but above all minimize the monthly bills for electricity consumption, which on a yearly basis allows for a great saving of the household budget. But how is the insulation of external walls compared to another, equally common way of insulating a property from the inside?

Why is it better to insulate the walls from the outside than inside?

Insulation of external walls is becoming an increasingly common solution to problems with heating buildings. However, many of us still opt for internal insulation, which unfortunately is not very functional and practical. The basic issue is to reduce the usable area of ​​individual rooms by applying subsequent insulation layers on the walls. In the case of small apartments or small properties, such an insulation system will absolutely not work, especially if you care about maintaining the right amount of free space. Another downside of insulation inside the building is the movement of the wall freezing zone, which results in condensation inside the insulation, and the formation of mold and moisture. This is absolutely unacceptable if there are small children or people with weakened immunity in the room. So let’s focus on slightly more functional and practical solutions, such as the use of external wall insulation as a form of real estate insulation.

Insulation of external walls and strengthening of the building’s facade

When deciding to install insulation of external walls, it is also worth emphasizing the issues of strengthening the walls of the building and their protection against the harmful effects of atmospheric factors such as humidity, heavy rainfall, extremely low or high temperatures. A satisfactory effect can be achieved by using properly matched materials of the highest quality, such as high-performance render. Traditional plaster, unfortunately, is very susceptible to cracking and prolongs renovation work, while high-performance render is a very flexible material, thanks to which it does not crack or break. In addition, it provides an additional protective layer for the walls and prevents mold, which can be very troublesome and difficult to remove.

Why insulate a building with insulation of external walls?

The main reason why we decide to invest in a heating system is, of course, the issue of rapid cooling of the building and very long heating of the rooms. High power consumption generates high costs of maintaining the property, which is very harmful not only for our budget, but also for the natural environment. Functionality that goes hand in hand with ecology is a perfect solution that allows household members to increase the comfort of their everyday lives and take care of moral aspects. Professional companies dealing with the installation of external wall insulation offer comprehensive services – from free consultations, through the selection of appropriate insulation materials to effective and careful finishing of the facade. Therefore, it is worth using the services of specialists who are well acquainted with construction law and will be happy to help in making a reasonable and mutually beneficial decision.
