WHICH cost ? The short term cost or the long term cost ?

You don't give the impresion of being able to look very far in front of your
nose, so I'll bet you'd be in favour of poor insualtion just to save a couple of
hundred dollars on the immediate sale price. Ignorance and plain outright
stupidity of that ilk is what needs to be challenged.

It can certainly be inproved, not least with new wall plasters believe it or
not. Dry lining can make serious improvements too.

There is still a very substantial stock in this category.



The improvement is not substantial until one starts putting in a
reasonable thickness of insulation.   This can be ameliorated to some
extent with materials such as Kingspan, but still involve issues such
as reduction in room size, how to handle window and door reveals
without making a pig's ear and redecorating etc.   This is not trivial
for most people.

hard to preserve all these when dry lining the inside of a room.
