Thermal insulation for a balanced indoor climate and low heating costs
Are you thinking about having your house insulated? There are numerous benefits of professional thermal insulation. New buildings are therefore provided with proper insulation systems already during construction. Moreover, the subsequent thermal insulation of a house is also possible without any problems and within a very short time. As a result, the construction works on an average single-family home are completed within one day.
The heat dissipation of your house can be significantly reduced in a simple but effective manner using various methods. In this way you not only reduce heating costs, which in turn is beneficial for our environment, but you also can take advantage of a pleasant and balanced indoor climate in every season.
Check your heating energy consumption now
Calculate your annual consumption of natural gas or heating oil (in m3 or litres) and divide the result by the heated area of your building (in m2).
You can use the scale to interpret your result. The calculated value should be possibly less than 15.
0 – 10: Your building insulation is sufficient. No further measures are necessary.
11 – 20: Your building insulation is not ideal. You have a savings potential.
21 – 30: Your building insulation is poor. Thermal insulation brings you considerable advantages.

Roof and wall insulation
Most of the heat gets lost through the roof and walls of a house. For this reason, it is particularly important to insulate them professionally in order to avoid unnecessary heating costs and to create a pleasant indoor climate, during hot and cold days. Because thermal insulation works in both directions. In this way, all the rooms you live in are optimally protected from intense heat and cold. We offer two particularly proven methods for insulating roofs and walls.
A crumbling, cracked or missing roof coating causes a leakage in a roof made of clay, concrete or plain tile roof cladding. This not only results in a loss of heat, but in the worst case can also cause wind and water to enter your house.
Your roof can be resealed using the spray-on method to prevent possible damages. This procedure involves the application of a mineral, non-inflammable and fibreglass reinforced roof mortar to the longitudinal and transverse seam of the roofing using the spray-on method. This provides permanent protection against wind and water and thus ensures a healthy indoor climate and a long durability of the building. Thanks to the mechanical processing, this procedure ensures an environmentally friendly, inexpensive and long-lasting alternative to a new roofing.
Great amounts of heat are lost, especially over large areas such as roofs and walls. For this reason, the insulation of these areas is particularly important.
The insulation with an injection method using insulation granules and flakes is particularly suitable for this purpose. It can also be used without problems for constructions that are difficult to access, such as attics with knee walls, suspended ceilings, nailed truss constructions, collar beam roofs and vaulted ceilings. The injection method is also perfectly suitable for roof pitches, nave aisles, collar beams, flat roof constructions, brickworks, drywalls and supply channels. In this procedure, mineral fibre flakes are injected or sprayed on at the point of application in a seamless manner free of voids using state-of-the-art machines and then stuck together using a water glass bonding agent to form an insulation layer, whereby all dust particles are bound. In this way, a uniform, structurally sound and long-lasting insulation layer is created at an affordable price in the shortest possible time.
Basement ceiling insulation
The heat loss of a house is not limited to the heat dissipation through the walls and roof. Large amounts of heat are also lost to the building site via the basement. Therefore, in addition to the thermal insulation of the roof and walls, thermal insulation of the basement ceiling is very important in order to save heating costs as effectively as possible. We offer two different procedures for this purpose.
Heat insulation with mineral fibre lamellas is particularly suitable for easily accessible basement ceilings. The lamellas are fixed to the basement ceiling using bonding method. For the surface protection, we coat the insulation with a latex fibre hardener, mineral paint or reinforcing mortar on request.
Alternatively, the basement ceiling can be provided with mineral insulation boards (WLG 35 ) using a bonding or dowel method. Mineral boards have a surface consisting of glass fleece and are non-inflammable as a building material of building material class A2. This process not only offers you protection against excessive heat loss, but also reliable fire protection.
Thermal insulation of basement ceilings with a cement-bound mineral fibre-based plaster of building material class A1 offers you a reliable fire protection and even acoustic insulation in addition to a thermal insulation function.
In this type of thermal insulation, the mineral-based plaster is applied to the basement ceiling using a spray-on method. Depending on the surface, the tested latex-based bonding courses or expanded metal mesh are applied to ensure optimal durability of the insulation. The binding time is between 8 and 10 days depending on the air temperature, the final strength is achieved after about 28 days.
On request, the surface can be finished by rolling or pressing. To increase the surface strength, we use fibre hardener or colour coating. So you not only get a safe and functional, but also visually appealing and durable end result.

Joints, for example between two buildings, are often overlooked in thermal insulation, but they take a lot of heat from a building. We are specialised in finding such joints and insulating them professionally. Thanks to the non-inflammable building materials used, this thermal insulation also offers fire and even acoustic insulation and protection against moisture. The joints are filled with mineral fibre flakes free of voids using the injection method and then bound together by means of a bonding agent. As a result, you will quickly receive both cost-effective and safe joint insulation that you can rely on for extensive protection.
