secoTHERM and secoFLEX Treatment – Leicester

Front after application of secoFLEX - Leicester

Project Description

This house in Leicester was a single skin property that was cold inside. 

A single skin property can be difficult to insulate. Internal insulation can take up valuable space and be disruptive, External insulation can be costly and change the aesthetics of a property.  Cavity insulation cannot be used as there isn’t a cavity on this property.

Dry homes means warmer buildings. We advised the customer that a secoTHERM wall treatment onto the bare bricks would slow down the heat transferring through the walls. secoFLEX colour was applied to the front of the property. secoFLEX is 100% waterproof.

The property owner was delighted with the results.
