Conserve Internal solid wall insulation
When internal solid wall insulation is fitted, either rigid insulation boards are attached to the inside walls of your home or alternatively a stud wall may be built and then fixed to the walls and filled with mineral wool fibre .
Both these processes reduce the overall floor area of the room and skirting boards, architraves, light fittings and door frames will have to be reattached to fit the new space. The space will also need to be replastered, finished and redecorated.
Internal solid wall insulation Advantages

- is generally more cost effective to install than external wall insulation.
