Can I insulate behind tiles on front of house?

Yes, you can insulate behind tiles on the front of a house.

The best way to do this would be to remove the tiles and apply an insulating board to the exterior wall. The tiles can then be refitted on top of the insulation.

Can I insulate behind exterior tiles from the inside?

No. At least not without some extensive building work.

Interior insulation needs to be installed between the breeze block wall and outer layer of brick and any tiles or cladding on top of this.

Therefore, you would need to remove some brickwork to access behind the tiles to fit the insulation.

How much would it cost to change the tiles to uPVC cladding?

The average cost to replace external tiles with uPVC cladding is around £500.

By removing the tiles, the installer will then be able to fully insulate the exterior wall before fixing the new uPVC cladding in place.

At Checkatrade, we have skilled and experienced exterior cladding and insulation specialists located in your area.
