Cavity Wall Insulation

 

Many tens of thousands of domestic properties have received retro-fitted Cavity Wall Insulation.

 

The obvious advantages are immediate savings on energy consumption and improved comfort levels for occupiers. Warmth in the winter and cooler in the summer.

 

However you need to be aware that not all cavity walls are suitable to receive cavity wall insulation

 

If the cavities are contaminated with debris before the installation of insulation, dampness can track across the cavity from the outside and result in damp patches to previusly dry internal wall surfaces.  Dampness can also appear at the base of the walls which can look like rising dampness.

 

It is the responsiblity of of the installing company to check that the walls are suitable to receive cavity wall insulation before it is installed.

 

If you notice problems after an installation of Cavity Insulation RDP Surveyors are able to invistigate and advise upon appropriate remedial work.  In most cases where we have undertaken such investigations for clients we have shown that the problems require attention by the installer at no cost the property owner.
