Kooka Developments EWI Installation review

”I would like to express my satisfaction with the standard of work carried out by Bobby from Kooka Developments at our house in Leicester.

We had a lot of building work carried out at our house over the last several years and the end result was that we had various different colours of bricks. The best way to have a uniform look rather than an unsightly appearance due to bricks laid over varying periods of time was to render the brick work.

We were very fortunate to have somebody of the calibre of Bobby to carry out the work.

Bobby was very clear about the number of visits that would be required to complete the work and what work would be done at each of the visits -prep, first coat etc.

He was punctual and very methodical in the way the project was carried out.

Despite some hiccups due to the weather conditions, it was very reassuring to know from him the reasons why it was best not to work on days when the conditions were not ideal to render – the work at my house was carried out during a rather cold period of time when it is critical for optimum conditions for the render to hold.

Bobby’s professionalism and value for money turned out to be a very worthwhile investment for us and I would have no hesitation in recommending him for any work that entails rendering where a high quality and durable finish is required.”

Professional EWI Installations

If you are a regular reader of this blog, then you will probably already know the many benefits of EWI to your home. If not, then EWI involves securing special insulation boards to the exterior of your property, and then applying render over the top to create a fresh, clean finish. EWI is suitable for many different types of properties and is a great option for achieving a number of things:

• Improving the thermal comfort of your home: keeping your home warm in the winter and cool in the summer
• Saving money on energy bills by reducing heat loss through your external walls
• Reducing the amount of noise that enters your home from outside.
• Saving space: EWI is all external and does not reduce your internal floor space.
• Improving the external appearance of your property and therefore upping its value.
• No disruption to the inside of your house during installation!

EWI isn’t an inexpensive job, but when it’s done correctly by the right installer you can save yourself hundreds every year on your energy bills and achieve a fantastic looking property from the exterior. EWI is appealing to many people who live in older style houses with solid brick walls, as it is possible to recreate characteristics and features of the property, thereby maintaining the traditional look of the property and keeping energy costs down at the same time!

Our EWI products are long-lasting, top quality and highly reliable – so be sure to contact one of our approved installers if you are interested!
