Barn conversions and period home restoration
Renovating a period home or converting a barn often necessitates replacing or removing and re-fitting an old roof entirely – a time-consuming and costly process.
Foamseal is increasingly being used in the conversion, restoration and renovation of period homes, schools, churches and barns – many of which are Grade I or II listed. Renovating these properties requires a sympathetic approach to the original character, but this does not mean that you have to settle for sub-standard insulation performance.
Foamseal can be plastered over for a beautiful finish, leaving most of the rafter exposed. If you are planning to plaster over Foamseal, the foam will require a certain amount of cutting back and trimming and the overspray will need to be removed from the beams, but this work can be organised in conjunction with your builders or plasterers.
Flint, brick, natural stone and timber frame walls can be treated in the same way to give water-resistant, fully insulated structures with no cold bridges.
