What is internal insulation? Internal insulation is essentially insulation which is applied to the inner face of external walls in a building. It’s usually bonded or screwed to the walls and usually extends from the very bottom of the ground floor all the way up to the eaves level and then carries on and meets up with the roof insulation. It’s there to provide a full internal skin of insulation to keep the interior of the building warm.

Cavity wall insulation’s a topic that I get asked an awful lot about and come across a lot of situations where it’s used either inappropriately or it isn’t used when it should be used. So I’m going to answer all the questions that we’ve been asked over the last year or so and hopefully answer everyone’s questions about it.
