About 40% of the UK housing stock is of solid walled construction and this amounts to approximately 4.4 million houses that were built before 1920. Often built of lime mortar these buildings are of a vapour permeable construction and so function differently from modern cavity walled houses. With many of these old buildings being cold and energy inefficient, there is often a desire to thermally upgrade them, however, the latest research shows that many of the current refurbishment methods will lead to real problems.

This talk gives an overview of thermal improvement techniques and the specification of breathable materials for old buildings as well as using case studies.
