External Wall Insulation

Baumit is an external wall insulation system. Plates made from polystyrene foam act as a heat insulating layer and are provided with a vapour permeable base plaster, also known as a reinforcement layer that consists of a filler and fibreglass mesh. On to of this a weather-resistant finish is added which is also vapour permeable. The system can be applied to all base surfaces and is ideal for both old and new buildings, individual houses or blocks of flats. It is even suitable for non-residential buildings such as sheds or workshops. R & G Building services install the entire range of Baumit products in London, Essex and Hertfordshire.

The picture on the right shows a poorly insulated home, with a large amount of heat passing straight through the walls.
