The problem

The customer was experiencing high heating bills and cold feeling rooms.

They realised insulation might help solve the problems but weren’t exactly sure what type of insulation was best suited to their property.

Our Approach

When working with a new customer, we start by completing a free property survey. This allows us to assess the current situation and identify the best insulation solution.

In order to inspect the wall cavity, we use a Borescope camera to view inside the wall. For this property, it showed that the cavities were empty and had no insulation inside, which explains the issues the customer had been experiencing.

The survey also found that the loft did have insulation but it was only 15cm deep and so no longer up to building regs standards (which is a minimum of 27cm).

The Solution

1. Cavity Wall Insulation

Armed with the survey information, we firstly recommended installing Beaded Cavity Wall Insulation; we use the product Thermabead for its quality and longevity.

2. Loft Insulation

Our second recommendation was to top up the Loft Insulation; for this we used Knauf 200mm top up insulation.

3. Protective Exterior Coating

The customer was also given an option to add on an application of Andura Pro-Clear Ultimate, this is a transparent coating that’s applied to the external brickwork following a cavity wall installation. It helps to keep the bricks dry and protect against weathering, two factors that can cause issues with cavity wall insulation if not managed correctly.

The Outcome

The combination of these 3 services creates a long-lasting and cost-effective solution, making the home feel much warmer and drastically lowering the heating bills.

All work was completed in 2 days by our qualified and friendly staff. Both Cavity Wall and Pro-Clear Spay are applied externally, so there was minimal disruption to customer and their home.
