Moist Wall

SkamoWall is the re-insulation that improves the indoor climate

Insulation is traditionally a way to reduce heat loss and thus lower energy bills. However, with increased awareness about the negative consequences of a poor indoor climate, there are now greater demands on insulation.

SkamoWall is the re-insulation that resolves problems with moisture and mold

Unlike many traditional ways of re-insulating, SkamoWall resolves problems with moisture and mold, thereby ensuring an improved indoor climate.

The combination of the SkamoWall Board being made of calcium silicate and associated SkamoWall products supporting diffusion-open properties means that moisture is regulated and mold is eliminated.

The mounting of SkamoWall takes place on the inside of the exposed wall, which can be done easily and quickly by both private and professional craftsmen.

Exterior re-insulation 

Exterior insulation, often called facade insulation, is a method of insulating a building’s exterior walls by placing insulation material on the outside of the wall and potentially covering it with a new facade.

The purpose of exterior insulation is usually to improve the building’s structure, just as some types of exterior insulation can protect the building’s structure against cold and moisture.

Exterior insulation can be complex and expensive to install, as it may be necessary to take account of the exterior walls’ load-bearing capacity, scaffolding work, etc. Since exterior insulation can affect the appearance and geometry of the building, it may require approval from local authorities before starting the project.

Interior re-insulation

On the other hand, when the insulation material is placed on the inside of walls and ceilings, it is called interior insulation. This type of insulation can be more practical if you want to maintain the appearance of the facade, or if it is difficult to access the building's exterior, such as in basements or multi-story buildings.

A commonly used interior insulation method is an insulation wall with a vapor barrier.

An insulation wall is an interior insulation solution consisting of several layers, which must be installed one by one. The insulation wall is built around a skeleton of either wood or steel and is installed without connecting to the outer wall where there is no insulation. There is a cavity in the insulation wall that is filled with a minimum of 50mm. Insulation wool, a vapor barrier, which is a plastic film that prevents moisture from penetrating the wall, then two layers of drywall of 12.5mm to 13mm each. Once the insulation wall has been installed, you can use paint or another type of coating on it.

If the building has problems with moisture or mold, this re-insulation solution with insulation walls may be problematic, as the moisture and mold will still be present behind the vapor barrier and may subsequently reappear on the walls.

Cavity wall insulation

Cavity wall insulation is a means of re-insulating by insulating the cavities that exist in a building’s structure. For example, this could be the cavity between the walls or between the ceiling and roof. The cavities are typically insulated with a material that has good insulating properties, such as glass wool or mineral wool.

The purpose of cavity wall insulation is to improve the thermal insulating performance of the building and thereby reduce heat loss and energy consumption.

Cavity wall insulation can be done by drilling holes in the structure and injecting the insulation material into the cavities.
