Unlike a lot of companies, Oldbury’s only removes full blown insulation and does not promote the installation of cavity wall insulation.
WHAT IS CAVITY WALL INSULATION REMOVAL?
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.
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 which 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.
THE REMOVAL SOLUTION THAT WORKS
Damp could occur in properties because of cavity-wall insulation if there is a combination of these factors:
⦁ Your home is exposed to severe levels of wind-driven rain (zones three or four in our map below) *
⦁ Your home is located in an unsheltered position, e.g., not protected by trees or other buildings.
⦁ The external walls are poorly built or maintained with, for example, cracks in the brickwork or rendering.
If you are getting damp coming in on walls that have had cavity wall insulation, then there may be a simple cost-efficient cure – having a professional’s diagnosis can save you thousands of pounds and prevent damage to your property – call or email Jon at Oldbury’s for a professional diagnosis and quote should removal of the blown cavity wall insulation be necessary,

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.”
