Unlike a lot of companies, Oldbury’s specialises in cavity wall insulation removal and does not offer or promote the installation of cavity wall insulation.
WHAT IS CAVITY WALL INSULATION REMOVAL?
Cavity wall insulation removal involves the use of high-quality extraction equipment
to remove faulty insulation. Far too often we see that cavity wall installers do not
recognize or report to homeowners that walls that are regularly exposed to
wind-driven rain should not have cavity wall insulation fitted. As proof of how
widespread the need for cavity wall insulation removals is, consumer magazine
‘Which?’ conducted an undercover investigation to ascertain whether cavity wall
insulation is being installed appropriately for consumers. They invited eight
companies to give a quotation on a property that had been assessed independently
as not being suitable for cavity wall insulation, to install cavity wall insulation. All eight
companies said the property was suitable for cavity wall insulation and quoted prices
for the work.
WHEN IS IT TIME FOR CAVITY WALL INSULATION REMOVAL?
WHY CAVITY WALL EXTRACTION?
Cavity wall insulation removals are needed when insulation is just not working
correctly. This could occur due to a combination of factors:
⦁ Your home is exposed to severe levels of wind-driven rain (zones three or four on the
left side of your screen)
⦁ Your home is located in an unsheltered position, e.g., not protected by trees or other
⦁ The external walls are poorly built or maintained with, for example, cracks in the
brickwork or rendering.
If you are hassled with damp coming in on walls that have had cavity wall insulation,
then cavity wall insulation removal is the cost-efficient cure for you. To start this
process, you can contact us via email or phone call to receive a professional diagnosis
that can save you thousands of pounds and prevent damage to your property.
JP – EATON-TERRY CLARK PROPERTY MANAGEMENT, EXMOUTH
We have recently used Oldburys to undertake repointing work on our Victorian office building and also to replace incorrect pointing at one of our rental properties. In both cases, long-standing issues with water ingress and condensation have been solved. Jon’s knowledge of buildings (especially older ones) and his advice has also been taken on several other matters and we plan to use his company further.”
