Is my house suitable?
Before the cavity wall installation, we will have one of our qualified surveyors arrange a day and time to call around and do an inspection on your home. This will normally take around 30 minutes; he will then be able to determine to weather your house is suitable.
Does the Technician have to come into the house?
The Technician must undertake checks before and after the cavity wall installation, including any heating appliances, so it is essential that they have access to the inside of your property. Apart from these checks, all the remaining work is carried out from the outside.
How long will it take to insulate my home?
Cavity wall insulation will normally take between 3-4 hours to insulate a home; this will depend on the size of the property.
My house is joined to another house, how do they stop the filling going into their cavity?
Installing cavity wall insulation assuming your neighbor’s house is not already insulated, the Technician will insert a cavity barrier at the party wall line. This is usually a bristle brush barrier. Of course, if your neighbor’s house is insulated at the same time, the cavity barrier is not needed.
Is there much mess?
The drilling process inevitably creates a little dust, which will be cleared at the completion of the job. It may be wise to remove vehicles from the drive and any items that are close to the walls. This will also give the Technician better access for equipment and tools.
