The Listed 19th Century School house was renovated and extended to create a new energy efficient residential family home. The existing building was sympathetically upgraded to modern comfort standards.
The renovation was followed on RTEs “room to improve” house renovation show with Architect Dermot Bannon.
So that the exterior facade of the property was not altered in any way, internal insulation was installed to the interior of the stone walls to the original house.
Due to the build up of condensation behind conventional insulation when applied to single leaf construction, it was apparent that a “breathable insulation system” would be required.. Remmers IQ Therm was chosen as it has the highest level of insulation for given thickness of breathable systems. The original U value of the wall was approx 3.3W/m2K and was improved to 0.33 W/m2K .
Remmers IQ therm is a complete system of fixing/insulation and finishing available in 3 board thicknesses.
