Cavity wall insulation Extraction

Defective cavity insulation means that you're not getting the benefits that you've invested in. However, the damage that poor cavity insulation can cause can actually be far worse. When wall insulation absorbs water and gets wet, it can lead to damp and mould in homes and if left unchecked, can result in structural damage to the property too.

- The density of cavity wall insulation was not correct when installing.
- The cavity wasn't professionally cleared before installation.
- The material has got soaked and is retaining water.
- Your property wasn't suitable for cavity wall insulation.

Within homes the walls and loft are the main source of heating loss. Insulation provides an extra barrier, preventing the warm air from escaping as much. As a result having cavity wall insulation insulation can dramatically reduce household energy bills. It will also improve a property's EPC rating, which can in turn raise property value and ensure the home meets basic energy efficiency standards.
