It is now common knowledge that by Insulating the walls of a property it will save up to 35% of the heat loss, resulting in reduced heating bills. The Government is pushing for all householders to have this work done and local councils are promoting the installation of "cavity wall Insulation", or exterior wall insulation as you may know it.
However there is a downside to the benefit of cavity wall insulation in some instances. If the property is not assessed and surveyed correctly by the installation company prior to the installation, then in certain cases problems can arise.
Property remedies have been asked to remedy problems arising as a result of cavity installation in properties where there was evidence of "Wall Tie" deterioration, or where the property was in an exposed location and driving rain penetrated through the outer skin of the building, thus wetting the insulation. In these cases damp patches subsequently occurred on the inner walls of the property to the plasterwork spoiling decorations.
If this occurs then the only remedy available is the removal of the insulation which would otherwise continue to cause damp problems to the interior of the property.
Property Remedies can repair the damage caused, both internally and externally to the fabric of the building and in line with Government thinking are able to clad the exterior walls with the necessary Insulation, then render over the new installation in a choice of different coloured renders thus leaving the cavity to do the job it was designed for in the first place.
Free Surveys are carried out initially and every case is different but Property Remedies can give advice and recommend Structural Engineers if the client has not already appointed one.
