The paper deals with how to improve the thermal performance of prefabricated multistory houses in Tallinn, Estonia, built in the 1960s and 1970s based on the results of thermal scanning during 1995-1996. The thermal scanning was performed by VTT Building Technology and reported by Helsinki Univ. of Technology. Based on the results of the first tests, some light renovation works were made, and the second tests showed how the repair work had succeeded. The aim of the project was to develop and test less-expensive and easy repair methods for large prefabricated multi-story house areas. The houses have been planned based on uniform design, when the existing problems can be generalized.
