Maes Hyfryd - Caernarfon
Gwynedd County Council has a number of traditional properties with filled cavity walls within their housing stock which required aesthetically upgrading along with improving water tightness.
The existing dash was in poor state of repair and offered little resistance to water ingress.
webertherm XL was the system specified which incorporated 30mm thick phenolic foam insulation boards, an expanded metal lath to carry the traditional renders which offered excellent water shedding properties and high impact resistance. The top coat render is through coloured and designed to receive dashing aggregates making it particularly durable.
The system provided efficient thermal insulation improving the U-value to 0.3W/m2K and dramatically reducing energy demands whilst the blended dashing aggregates delivered an attractive and resilient finish.
