Hi, We are in the process of buying a 1920’s timber framed bungalow in Suffolk. It needs the normal things like new kitchen and bathroom. A builder has suggested removing existing render as it is in poor condition and insulating then putting blocks on the outside with render over this . The local council will not allow brick as there are approx. 15 other properties of the same nature in the road which are all rendered. Also on the interior we are looking to dry line the walls although there does not appear to be any damp in the property.
My question really is: Is this the best answer to this particular type of property.
I would welcome any advice.
