Private Residence Wilford


The owners wanted to insulate their 1930s home, which had solid brick walls, was cold in winter, hot in summer and had problems with damp and condensation.

They wanted to retain a brick finish, in keeping with their local area and chose Eurobrick because we have well established credentials, offer such a wide choice of brick slips and because our X-Clad system could not only solve their problems but could also achieve energy savings of up to 30%.

We used 75mm thick insulation panels on most of the house, reducing to 50mm where there were space restrictions and 17mm where no insulation was required, inside the porch. The homeowners chose Rustic Red Charcoal multi with a detail band of Smooth Anthracite, from our Britannia Range and the brickwork was pointed using a mid grey mortar.

The homeowners are thrilled with the results. They were able to live in the house as normal while the work was carried out and now have a considerably drier atmosphere inside. They were also very happy to see a 30% reduction in their heating costs and, following a property valuation, the new look exterior had added kerb appeal and therefore value to the property too.
