When the cement render was hacked off, it was clear that the walls had been kept very wet due to the wrong materials being used. Many of the timber lintels had to be replaced and when a wall is damp, it is a poor insulator, so successive residents would have had to endure a colder home and higher heating bills.
Cork is not only insulating but also lightweight and therefore offers lower shear stresses on the substrate. Apart from the added insulation value, the eco-credential for using cork instead of sand should make this product high on the list for anyone looking for an environmentally sensitive render.
