Why Remove Cavity Wall Insulation?

It is estimated that over 6 million properties around the UK have had cavity wall insulation installed. And of course the energy efficiency and cost saving make it very popular.

However, we live on an island with a generally damp climate often exposed to high winds and even icy conditions.

This takes its toll on brick work which can lead to gaps opening up in bricks or pointing and water getting into the cavity itself. The whole point of insulation is to insulate. It stops air flow. The problem with this is that once it becomes wet, it is virtually impossible to dry out.

Instead dampness and cold is drawn through the cavity into the inside of the property. You can see this if there are cold spots on walls in your home or unexplained patches of damp.

Not only can this create uncomfortable living conditions, but the prolonged damp will also rust wall ties, an integral structural part of the property which can eventually mean the inner and outer walls can actually separate.

Damp insulation cannot be ignored. If you suspect your home might be affected, we recommend calling us out as soon as possible.
