How Much Should Your Home Insulation Cost?
Try out our FREE online interactive calculator.
External insulation involves adding a new layer of heat trapping material outside of your home. In cases where your home has no wall cavity insulation must be applied either internally or externally. Having some level of insulation on the walls of the building is essential to stopping heat from leaking out and increasing your bills.
Putting it on the outside of the building has the advantage that it doesn’t alter the living space afterwards. There is also no disruption to your life or need to move out while work is underway.
There are a number of practical advantages to choosing external insulation. Because there is no issue with lost floor space you can apply as thick a layer as needed to give your home the appropriate level of comfort.
Beyond that it reduces the risk of damp by wrapping the entire building, can slow the spread of smoke or fire, and can be finished with any exterior you desire to keep your home looking good.

“Derek 1st of all came on time. Gave his quote which we discussed and came to an agreement. He started working on time and finished the job in the time frame. His work was beyond a great job. His team were the cleanest workers I have meet. So now I have the new beautiful room I dreamed of. Thanks”
“One month to the day from my signing a contract with Derek Griffin, Arated Building Services, he completed the job of making good the badly built extension to my house. At every step of the way, Derek delivered exactly what he promised, on time, at reasonable cost and to a very high standard. He and his team were a pleasure to deal with. I particularly appreciated the transformation of my understairs den into usable space and the reinforcing of an original floorboard over pipes. Very happy”
“Fantastic service from Derek. He is from the area so knew the house structure very well. This meant that he could give me an accurate costing and idea of timefor the job. He arrived promptly and finished early. Work was completed to a veryhigh standard and any mess made was cleared away thoroughly. I would not hesitate to recommend Derek.”
“Two of the three tradesmen responded. The competing quote for the windowpane was expensive and Derek quoted to replace the entire window. We accepted his higher quote and replaced the window. However, when installed, the design was a mirror image of the original and unacceptable. I paid the extra material cost and Derek did not charge for the replacement installation. His work was efficient and well finished and I would recommend him to others. Both original trades presented as expert.”
“Derek replaced windows for me and the job was absolutely perfect. From start to finish, he looked after everything. The old windows were removed and taken away, the new ones installed and the house left cleaner that it was beforehand.
There was net even a need to paint or repair anything around the new windows (still can’t work out how he done the one in the bathroom and not remove the tiles). I have no hesitation in recommending Derek to other customers.”
“Derek Griffin @Arated Building Services did a very good job. no messing and completed in agreed timeframe and as per budget.I would recommend Derek for exterior insulation. John in Sutton.”
“Very happy with Derek and his work. He came to give a quote and then emailed a detailed breakdown of the quote with materials required and labour costs. He was professional and very knowledgeable and advised us of what we needed. Hisquote included an option for new fans, which we decided to go ahead with. He arrived on time and completed the job quickly and to a very high standard, with no mess left behind. I would recommend him to anyone and I will definitely use him again.”
“I had purchased an old property that needed alot of work carried out. I shopped around and decided to go wioth Derek. He organised replacing all the external windows, installing a composite front door, internal insulation on all external walls, plastering (walls and ceilings) and coving carried out by Derek. All of whichwas carried out in a professional and very cost effective solution to my needs. I would definetly recommend Derek for any building works going forward.”
