Does Your Project Require Rendering & Insulation?

CASE STUDY

Social Housing Decarbonisation Fund, EWI Project

Progress Housing, Lake District

As part of a Social Housing Decarbonisation Fund project for Progress Housing Association and Everwarm contractors, ProGuard Exteriors were brought on to manage the External Wall Insulation (EWI) requirement for these properties in Kendall, Lake District.

ProGuard began with a comprehensive technical survey for the client to determine the most suitable EWI system. We recommended the installation of EWI Pro 90mm EPS, finished with a silicone render.

ProGuard provided a full supply and fit service, delivering a complete turn-key solution to Everwarm the main contractor.

Work included:

  • Arranging scaffolding
  • Removing lights and waste pipes
  • Installing core holes for ventilation
  • Installing fascia and guttering
  • Installing the full EWI system

Before and After

What a difference the External Wall Insulation work made! While EWI is installed to increase the energy efficiency of a property, the by-product is a completely updated, modernised and protected facade, that will last for many decades to come. Finished with a silicone render, these properties are now thoroughly revamped.

Our team managed the project from start to finish, both on-site and from our head office. We liaised regularly with the main contractor, ensuring the timely provision of documentation to keep the project PAS compliant.

PAS 2035 compliance is a meticulous process that requires thorough planning, detailed knowledge of the standards, and continued quality control.

At ProGuard, we conduct checks at multiple stages throughout the project, ensuring:

  • Correct use of primer
  • Proper application of adhesive to boards
  • Adequate number of fixings per board
  • Roof extensions provide the appropriate overhang
  • Use of XPS below the DPC
