Essendon Lodge, Hertfordshire
Essendon Lodge is an attractive property built in the mid 1800's that urgently required complete renovation to provide a comfortable and elegant home.
Built of nine-inch solid brickwork, recognised as a hard-to-heat construction, the house required insulation and complete internal restructure. The innovative one-coat, through coloured webertherm XP EWI system was used in the dramatic thermal and aesthetic upgrade of this traditional estate lodge house, using 60mm thick phenolic foam insulation panels mechanically fixed to the sound brick substrate. The architect and client requested the buildings features be preserved and called for the plinth detail and mid-floor feature band running around the facade to be maintained when the new render coat was applied, this was created using a further layer of insulation and beading to enhance the attractive features of the original building.
