Hi to all members, I just joined the forum and this is my first post(of many more to come in the future, i’m sure).
I’ve been living in a BISF house for about 10 years now, and am now in a position to have a full external facelift to the property, eg new roof, fascias, guttering/pipes, steel profile removed, re-insulated top to bottom and a smooth rendered finish to it all, along with ripping down the old side sheds(my converted utility room) and extending out a bit more and rebuilding it.
One of my first questions is about the insulating, am i right in saying that external wall insulation is the best way to go with this house, so not to cause any future condensation and steel rot problems???
if so the permarock system looks like a good way to go for the bottom of the house, but can it also be applied to the top(not being a solid wall) where the steel will be removed or am i looking up the completely wrong avenue??
Any info, comments, images, diagrams, costs etc on this would be greatly appreciated if possible.
Thanks in advance.
