Cladding 2&5 Mortimer Street

Togheter with the main contractor, Pilon Ltd., we have been part of the cladding of the building situated on 2&5 Mortimer Street. We have use PVC exterios wall cladding which is one of the fastest growing home improvement products. We used Freefoam cladding to give the outside of the building a stunning makeover.

The Freefoam cladding is suitable for a huge variety of projects from single outside feature walls and dormer and loft elevations to whole house installations and garden buildings. It is available in a wide range of subtle colours from Pale Cream and Blue to darker shades of Brown, Black and Grey.

External PVC cladding will last, guaranteed for up to 20 years.

Freefoam External PVC cladding is super easy to maintain and is the perfect ecological alternative for the wood cladding.

Cut heating costs with exterior cladding

We all want to reduce our heating bills and make our homes more energy efficient and this was the main focus of this project.

Fitting exterior wall cladding can provide the ideal solution to insulate your home. Designed for use on all types of materials including brick, block, masonry and concrete, when fitted with standard insulation materials the BRE (British Research Institute) Green Guide gives PVC cladding an A+ rating. This means that choosing cladding not only improves the appearance of your property but gives you extra insulation and the chance to save money..

Solid walls allow twice as much heat to enter your home compared to cavity walls. See the handy chart below to see how much you could save.

Above estimates are based on a typical install, ranging between a small flat and a large detached home. Data values are for England, Scotland and Wales areas.

External wall insulation

External wall insulation involves fixing a layer of insulation material to the wall, then covering it with a cladding.

The advantages of external wall insulation using cladding:
- can be applied without disruption to the household;
- does not reduce the floor area of your home;
- renews the appearance of outer walls;
- improves weatherproofing and sound resistance;
- fills cracks and gaps in the brickwork, which will reduce draughts;
- increases the lifespan of your walls by protecting the brickwork;
- reduces condensation on internal walls and can help prevent damp (but will not solve rising or penetration damp)

In some instances, you may need planning permission - check with your local council. You will require good access to the outer walls and it is not recommended if the outer walls are structurally unsound and cannot be repaired.
