When rendering a timber frame property, we advise using render systems that will both protect and insulate as timber frame houses cool down and heat up quickly and aren’t naturally as energy efficient. As you can see in the construction stages aluminium foil is applied before rendering new build timber framed houses but even these benefit from adding external wall insulation and render. External wall insulation is perfect for timber frame houses as in construction stages the timber frames must be tightly sealed against water and moisture so cannot be built using cavity walls.
When choosing a render system for timber framed houses we advise using breathable materials. For example, using wood shavings (wood fibre insulation) coated with a silicone render system you will naturally insulate your home and protect the timber frame from elements and water. The silicone render systems we use can also breathe so natural wood will be protected.
Whether rendering a new build timber frame home or adding external wall render to an existing wooden framed house applying external wall insulation at the same time will lower costs and add value to protect and weatherproof your timber framed home for decades to come.
