Exterior insulation is technically preferable. In many cases, however, they cannot be implemented because an exterior façade is a listed building, for example, and may not be altered.
Our approach to interior insulation:
The cause: Uninsulated exposed façades.
Insufficient insulation of exterior walls causes the interior rooms and wall surfaces to cool down. The consequences are an uncomfortable living climate, the risk of mould growth and increased energy demand when trying to raise the room temperature again.
Initially we carefully clean the surface, removing wallpaper and paint. We eliminate any mould infestation professionally.
02 Installation of the interior insulation
We place a special adhesive mortar to bind the high diffusion insulation plates to the wall surface.
Finally, we revise the surface with a special putty in which is incorporated a reinforcement fabric. With the optional final skim we provide a smooth and even wall surface. This surface can be painted to taste.
Thanks to the capillary conductivity of our ISOTEC Interior Insulation, there is no need for a vapour barrier. The interior insulation absorbs excess humidity from the ambient air and releases it when the air humidity falls again.
The non-insulated walls not only negatively impact the comfort of the interior environment, but also reduce the ambient temperature and surface temperature of the walls, which favors the growth of mould. A subsequent insulation with our ISOTEC Interior Insulation provides a pleasant interior environment, prevents mold formation and maintains ambient temperature in isolated spaces.
Even in buildings that are not listed, interior insulation makes perfect sense. This way, the façade remains untouched. Furthermore, the cost of subsequent insulation from the inside is usually much lower and also more cost-effective, as it is not necessarily necessary to insulate the entire façade. For example, in the case of damp and mould in some rooms, only partial renovation is possible. A measure for insulation and renovation from the inside also has the advantage that, in addition to the façade, the new garden or the adjacent garage remain untouched during the renovation. Although renovating and insulating the façade from the outside would certainly be the best choice from a building physics point of view, your house is also effectively protected against moisture with interior insulation. We use interior insulation in the course of removing mould damage.
ISOTEC only uses systems that have been proven to meet practical and official requirements. This also applies to the building physics properties of the ISOTEC interior insulation system, which has been extensively tested scientifically and practically in terms of protection against moisture, mould infestation and insulation properties. All renovation work on your house or wall is carried out by our intensively trained employees.
- Measure for insulating from the inside without changing the appearance of the façade
- Rapid heating of the insulated rooms
- Prevention of renewed mould growth on the insulated walls
- Pleasant room climate
- Individual design options for the wall surface
- Pure mineral and non-combustible building material
It is best to contact a professional who will explain the advantages and disadvantages of the different options in more detail.
