It has never been more important to have someone with experience and specialist rendering knowledge on your side to navigate the complexities of choices for your project.
What insulation should you use?
Your choice of insulation should be based upon your budget and any particular requirements you may have; there is no single ‘best’ type of insulation. There are three main insulation types:
Expanded Polystyrene (EPS)
One of the most cost effective solutions to give good insulation performance, combined with the benefit of being lightweight and easy to work with.
Mineral Fibre (Rock Fibre)
Offers good insulation performance at a mid-range cost and is the best choice where fire resistance is top of the list of requirements.
Normally comes at a higher cost than EPS or Mineral Fibre but gives a very high insulation performance, typically requiring in the region of 60% thickness of comparable insulations.
