We have had the quote come back in from Lakehouse. The brick slips add a lot to the cost of the external rendering of the house it’s not clear from the quote how much, but the cost for internally insulating the house throughout would be £4505 and the cost of insulating the front internally and the back externally with brick slips would be £16406, that’s a difference of £12,000. We have gone back to the company for more information about doing the insulation in different ways.
We have asked for a breakdown on the cost of the brick slips, and maybe only rendering the side of the house (on the side return with the kitchen and the upstairs bedroom and bathroom where internal insulation will take up the most noticeable space and cause the most disruption) without brick slips and then we do the rest of the house internally. I’m looking forward to seeing what Lakehouse come back with.
