External wall insulation (EWI) is a type of insulation which is applied to the external walls of your home.

The application of EWI reduces your heating bills and as a result  your carbon emmissions.

EWI is the most efficient way to insulate an existing building. It uses the fabric of the building like a storage radiator. Because the heat can no longer escape  through the outer layer of insulation, it is reflected back  into the living areas, creating a constant  warmer home.




McAuliffe Bros use the Baumit External Wall Insulation System.


How is External Wall Insulation Applied ? 

  1. The insulation is mechanically  and adhesively fixed to all external walls
  2. A fibre mesh is embedded onto the insulation board using a basecoat
  3. A coloured primer is applied to the basecoat when fully dry
  4. A coloured and textured acrylic  render finish  is then applied.

There is an extensive range of colours and textures to choose from. The final result is a durable low maintenace finish that only requires hosing down every 3 – 5 years,
