What kind of Wall do you have?

Discovering whether or not your home would benefit from Thermal Plasterboards will depend on whether your home is made up of cavity walls or solid walls. 

One method of discovering what kind of wall you have, is determining how old your property is: 

If your home was built prior to 1920, it is fairly certain that your walls will be solid. This is because although cavity walls were around in the 19th Century, they didn’t really become popular until the 1920’s.


If your walls are solid, then your walls will not have the same amount of insulation as cavity walls. However, adding Thermal Plasterboards to the walls could help by giving the walls thermal properties.


Howarth Timber & Building Supplies offer a variety of Thermal Plasterboards that comply with British Standard EN 13950.
