Cavity Wall Insulation Extractions

Damp problems? Condensation issues?

Not all properties are suitable for cavity wall insulation and indeed many homes are now suffering from damp and condensation issues caused by cavity wall insulation that has either not been installed according to the manufacturers instructions or has been installed to properties that should have failed the installers site surveys.

Typically the first sign of an issue is black spot mould on walls, around windows and to the corners of ceilings. In extreme circumstances the plaster starts to bubble and wall paper peels at the edges.

We provide full services to check wall ties and to replace if required.

Remedies range from improved ventilation, mould inhibitors, and removal of cavity wall insulation by experienced engineers.

If you require insulation extracting from your property, please call us and to arrange a survey and quote for removing the insulation.

Our extraction service includes:

  • Complete extraction of cavity wall insulation
  • Review of condition of wall ties
  • Removal of mortar blobs from wall ties
  • Removal of rubble that causes damp bridging in cavities

 

Mortgage Fails

Leaving damp insulation in your walls for too long can result in serious damage to the internal plaster works and wall ties. Mortgage providers may now check the condition of insulation and wall ties making a problem home difficult to sell. We provide full services to check wall ties and to replace if required.

 

Health Issues

Homes with damp and condensation issues can cause illness or may exacerbate existing medical conditions such as COPD, Asthma and Bronchitis so it is important that black mould is cleaned regularly if possible and the causes identified and resolved.

 

Cavity Wall Insulation Claims

If you have had cavity wall insulation installed to your home and you have noticed damp and/or condensation problems after the installation date we will put you in touch with claims solicitors who will review your case to find out if you have a valid claim.

You will be required to produce your CIGA certificate (you can contact CIGA direct if you require a replacement). Cavity Wall Insulation Claims
