Increased energy prices are driving the demand for upgrading the thermal efficiency of existing buildings. Timber frame buildings can be refurbished in various ways and the payback is particularly attractive when the work is done as part of a general refurbishment and/or recladding.

This WIS outlines the options available and summarises the important issues for specifiers to consider when implementing improvements:
Contents:
- Options for improving thermal performance
- Improving airtightness
- Increasing roof insulation
- Upgrading windows
- Adding floor insulation
- Increasing wall insulation

See also WIS 1-50 for guidance on insulated wood cladding methods.
