Increased awareness of climate change and the introduction of new legislation and guidelines for increased thermal efficiency in our current building stock means more people are considering retrofitting their homes for improved thermal performance.
The key to successful retrofitting for energy efficiency and sustainability is a comprehensive understanding of how different materials respond to changes in atmospheric conditions. Poor understanding of how different building materials and products behave can have unintended detrimental consequences and in extreme cases cause significant damage to the building fabric. Substandard installation of good materials can also cause problems.
At Heartwood we understand the importance of choosing the right materials and installing them competently so they perform as they were designed to do. We can advise on and install products and materials which are sympathetic and compatible with your type of construction to reduce energy bills without compromising the integrity and aesthetics of your home.
