Top 5 benefits of WrightWall and WrightRoof Natural

Are you researching ways to ensure your upcoming self-build project is energy efficient? You are not alone!

In 2020, the National Custom Build & Self Build Association (NaCSBA) and the Building Societies Association conducted an online survey which found that 89% of the participants “said it would be important for their ‘built home’ to be energy efficient.” So, to support your future project, here are just a handful of ways you could benefit from designing an oak frame home that is insulated and encased by our WrightWall and WrightRoof encapsulation system.

 

1. Breathable

Our Natural panels will allow your walls and roof to breathe, meaning atmospheric moisture can move and dry outwards while retaining excellent airtightness performance and avoiding unnecessary moisture build up.

 

2. Natural and recycled content

The insulation used within our WrightWall and WrightRoof Natural encapsulation system is made from recycled newspaper, containing cellulose, which is a fantastic insulator.

Our clients, Andrew and Linda, encased their oak frame with WrightWall and WrightRoof Natural, achieving Passivhaus certification

3. Heat retention and keeping cool

Built with excellent insulation density, our Natural panels provide impressive U-values. This will improve the thermal performance of your walls and roof, increasing comfort, as your home remains at an optimum temperature, while you enjoy lower running costs and energy bills.

 

4. Airtightness

An integral feature of our award-winning encapsulation is its exceptional airtightness capabilities: vital if you are striving to meet Passivhaus building standards.

In Worcestershire, we worked with our clients, Andrew and Linda, to create the frame for UK’s first certified oak frame Passivhaus Bed and Breakfast (pictured above) which was encased by WrightWall and WrightRoof Natural. Please click here to learn more and read about their self-build journey.

 

5. Service voids

Our Natural panels include an internal service void, providing a straightforward solution to installing first fix electrical and plumbing services, driving your exciting build forwards.
