Issues with External Wall Insulation (Images and information)

Damp (Condensation)

Walls that do not get enough solar radiance, airflow or arent heated properly during winter may suffer from condensation. Airflow is vital for your property as the water vapour can build up creating condensation. This can be made worse when the external walls are particularly cold in comparison to the inside air. If rooms are well ventilated and heated inside the house, the building can dissipate away. But, if not condensation can be a very common occurrence.

First signs of condensation are around your windows themselves. They will start to stream up on the inside this means the vapour has been able to condense onto them. At the start, you may not be able to see condensation on the walls. If untreated condensation can become persistent you will begin to see water droplets which will start staining the inside walls. Damp patches can form if persistent condensation is still not treated.

Roofing Issues

​As seen in the image this External Wall insulation has not been installed correctly.

  1. The roof should be overhanging the External wall insulation this to prevent water from going behind the insulation and creating water damage to the walls. Water behind the insulation can create damp and mould by the walls being constantly wet.
  2. The external wall insulation cover (The white panel) is in three pieces this should be all one piece to prevent water from going through the cracks. This can also create water damage to the insulation and walls underneath creating mould and damp in the process.
  3. It is clear from this image that the person has tried to ventilate their insulation by adding vents. This wouldn’t be required if the insulation had been installed accurately.

Incorrect Sealing

In this image the mortar is covering the gas vent this can be very dangerous as the heating, ventilation, and air-conditioning system (HVAC) will continue to push air into the vent causing a buildup of air pressure.

When working around pipes the installer should seal the pipes completely. Completely sealed pipes prevent water damage through the cracks and breakdown of the external wall insulation.

Poor Fitting

Here is an example of poorly fitted external wall insulation. If external wall insulation is not fitted correctly it can crack and breakdown. This creates gaps for water to penetrate the insulation and therefore the insulation become faulty and can damage your home. This poorly fitted insulation has also started crumbling which not causes problems but is aesthetically unpleasing to the consumer.

Types of External Wall insulation

Expanded Polystyrene(EPS)

The most popular choice is expanded polystyrene (EPS), this is due to it being the most cost effective means of carrying out the works. EPS is lightweight, non-toxic and recyclable.

Mineral Wool

Mineral wool can be used to insulate solid walls. Some people choose this product because it is breathable however if mineral wool is chosen for this reason no acrylic render should be used to finish the project as acryic is not breathable and therefore becomes useless.

Phenolic Resin

Phenolic resin tends to be the more expensive form of external wall insulation. This method can be expensive due to the thermal properties of phenolic resin being very high. However, installers tend to steer clear from this type of external wall insulation due to the fact phenolic resin can shrink and therefore cause cracks meaning the material can fail in the long- run.
