If a substantial part of the walls is being covered, Building Regulations require that the level of insulation in the walls is improved. This can be done within the cavity if there is one, but on an older solid walled house with no cavity it will usually mean applying insulation to the exterior of the building behind the timber cladding.
foil-faced polyisocyanurate board insulation and exterior vertical wood strapping for cladding attachment. This wall had the lowest associated incremental cost,
This research project developed baseline engineering analysis to support the installation of thick layers of exterior insulation (2” to 8”) on existing masonry walls and wood framed walls through the use of wood furring strips (fastened through the insulation back to the structure) as a cladding attachment location. Furthermore, water management details necessary to connect
External Wall Insulation Retrofit and Timber Cladding. by Mark Row. House Design Refurbishment Project. Apart from the fact the supporting framework must be able to bear the cladding, it also needs to be suitable for the exterior wall insulation added,
Taking it one step farther, Insulated cleaner exterior and even reduce wall If you are still not convinced that Installing Insulated Vinyl Siding is your best choice for cladding your home
