Course 3: Installer Masterclass – Masterclass (different finishes / detailing)

Most installs don’t involve rendering / insulating a flat, windowless wall. In this module we discuss how to deal with the various features you may come across like downpipes, flues, vents, window reveals, the DPC, cills and facia boards. Crucially we discuss how to extend the roofline or ‘cap’ the insulation protecting it against water ingress. We also look at the different finishes that can be achieved with the different EWI Pro renders.

Areas covered include:

  • Basic render, scratch render, mosaic render
  • Strengthening mesh layers
  • Detailing – hot wire cutter to produce a finer finish.
  • Dealing with unusual auxiliary items.
  • Insulating below the DPC
  • Working around gas meters and other detailing

Who is this course suitable for?

  • Experienced installers already using the EWI Pro external wall insulation system.

At the end of this course, attendees will be approved EWI Pro installers and will be in receipt of an EWI Pro Platinum card (Course 2 needs to be completed prior to attending Course 3).
