This guidance note provides advice on the principles, risks, materials and methods for insulating solid masonry walls. The insulation of early forms of cavity construction (mid19th century onwards) is covered by a separate guidance note. Traditional solid wall construction is probably the most difficult, and in many cases the least cost effective building element to insulate. Whether applied externally or internally, work of this nature will have a significant impact on the appearance of the building. For listed buildings any form of wall insulation is likely to require listed building consent and for the majority of buildings external insulation will usually require planning permission. External insulation can be particularly difficult to incorporate into existing buildings as costly ancillary adaptations such as changes to the eaves and verges of roofs, rainwater goods, and window and door reveals are often required.
