Yes, the elements can be painted any colour you wish.
Yes, CAREBRICK® can be installed in both, solid and cavity walls.
The system can be installed in practically all types of natural stone found in Europe. Up to now, we have not yet come across a natural type of stone that we could not install in.
It is not possible to partly install CAREBRICK®. The system has to be installed in all accessible external walls of the property for the system to work at its maximum potential. If a part-installation is carried out we cannot guarantee the optimum operation of the system.
In principle we can solve all damp problems, excluding leakages. Our expert will visit your property to assess the problems and to give you free, no-obligation advice. When you decide to go ahead with the installation of CAREBRICK®, you will get a lifetime guarantee on the system.
No, insulation does not solve damp problems. On the contrary, when more moisture is coming in than can be disposed of, the insulation too will eventually get filled with moisture. Too much insulation will also block the breathing effect of a wall and might cause condensation. Initially the wall will be able to retain more heat because of the insulation, but after a while the insulation too will fill with moisture because of condensation. The insulation will not have the intended effect.
For the system to work at its maximum potential, the inside air temperature must be higher than the outside temperature.
