Changing the use of an existing building often requires physical changes to the external fenestration. This can completely reshape the structure to make it suitable for its new use. Thermal performance criteria also need to change in-line with the intended occupancy.
Common issues and queries you can face
Re-fenestrate and insulate exterior of building
Use steel framing and external sheathing board to re-fenestrate, and external wall insulation to protect, insulate and upgrade the structure's facade. In doing this, the whole construction will be kept warm with condensation risks and cold spots eliminated.
Rendering over existing render is a last resort, and we recommend discussing alternatives and suitability with our technical team prior to taking action. Our technical team can be contacted by:
