The benefits of Stormdry have been evaluated in an independent report from the environmental management consultancy, Giraffe Innovation. The findings verify the energy and carbon savings that can be achieved by treating walls with the breathable water-repellent masonry protection cream.
The evaluation includes a peer review of existing data and test reports, updated SAP CO2 figures for a model house with solid brick walls, and a detailed carbon footprint analysis for Stormdry. This has used a full lifecycle approach (from cradle to grave) to analyse the total carbon use for the production and application of a Stormdry treatment.
An estimate is given of the energy and carbon savings that can be made from lowered space heating requirements following treatment of masonry walls with Stormdry. Key findings are:
