External wall insulation consists of a layer of insulation such as EPS Board, PUR Board, Mineral Fibre, Wood Fibre or Hemp Batts. EPS being the most common solution.

There are various finishes which then can be applied to the render, Silicone, Brick Effect, Brick Slips and Spar Dash are the most common used.
