A Manx building specialist has introduced a new product to its range which will not only insulate the exterior of your property and keep it warmer in winter, but will also make it watertight and at the same time give it a sleek, modern look.
The Venetian Plaster Company’s ‘external wall insulation’ is fitted in two parts; firstly, a coat of thermal insulation is applied to a building before a specialist, lightweight render system is applied over the top to seal it. This revolutionary mineral-based product is applied using just one-coat thus saving hours of application time, significantly reducing labour costs including scaffold hire, and minimising disruption to the building owner.
The thermal insulation layer forms a barrier to prevent heat escaping from a building on a cold day, and attracting it on a warm day. Although a property will always require a continual input of heat in winter to maintain a certain temperature level, that level should be lower in a well insulated building.
The lightweight render can be applied in any colour or texture, transforming the look of a property from a tired, old and dated shell to a stunning, warm and modern exterior. It protects older buildings, extending their life by keeping the ageing structure warm and stable, and makes construction of walls of new-builds much easier. It also comes with a ten-year guarantee.
The Venetian Plaster Company is the Isle of Man’s leading expert in providing and applying decorative polished plaster wall finishes. It offers a bespoke service to both residential and commercial clients, leaving them with a stunning, superior decorative wall finish reminiscent of its Italian roots. It also specialises in application of lightweight, external insulated render coverings for properties as well as all aspects of building and refurbishment.
Steve Garaty and Derran Slous, Directors of the Venetian Plaster Company, commented: “With the rising cost of heating bills and the seemingly colder weather we are experiencing, this is definitely a product to invest in. Everyone wants a toasty warm home or work-space in the winter, and our external wall insulation will certainly help you to achieve that whilst at the same time having an impact on your heating bills and giving your home a stunning, modern new look in any colour or finish you desire. This product has a huge number of benefits and uses, both for domestic and commercial properties, and we would encourage anyone who is interested in finding out more to get in touch with us via our website, www.plaster.im.”
