Conventional drylining is extremely bad for old masonry buildings           FOR OTHER INSULATION OPTIONS SEE OUR INSULATION CENTRE

It is a totally unacceptable solution because it Causes many more problems than it solves
It is a largely a cosmetic solution, hiding the damp problems
It moves the dew point from the wall surface to the cold wall behind the dry lining, dramatically increasing condensation.

The phenomena is know as interstitial condensation, which means condensation that occures within the fabric of the wall or roof, ie between or in the layers of the materials
