External wall insulation systems are widely used in Portugal both for new build and renovation or refurbishment projects.
Many people wish they had insulated their home properly before starting all the other more cosmetic works.
Whatever you do try not use “disturbing the paint finish” of your home as a cheep excuse for not having it properly insulated. There is no excuse for anyone not be warm in Portugal
Even the most glamorous home feels like a morgue when the interior temperature plunges and all you have is the discomfort of living in a cold, damp cell.
Trying to live in a cold damp home is very high on the list of things that drive people to quit Portugal and return to their country of origin.
Before you rush off and order your new insulation you really have to make sure that it is (a) the correct type of insulation for your home.
(b) that it is the correct thickness to make a real difference.
(c) that it will not cause damp problems or temporarily mask damp problems.
