Looking at insulting my loft somewhere in the near future to use as an office space. Gable end brickwork looks pretty bad, mortar sandy and missing in places. Gable end is also single brick - what would be the best way to insulate and repair this?
Hi sheepish123 Unless the mortar joints are a lot worse than your pictures there seems little need for repointing. Fix treated battens to the wall add a DPM and fit insulation + plasterboard Onto this. Regards S
