EFFECTIVE BLOWN CAVITY WALL INSULATION REMOVAL

EFFECTIVE BLOWN CAVITY WALL INSULATION REMOVAL

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,

Reviews

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.”

POINTING

Pointing a Victorian terrace house. Excellent workmanship, carried out promptly at a very fair price.

EXCELLENT SERVICE BY FINE CRAFTSMEN

John repointed the “skirt” of our house in 2015 and then did some remedial work after other workmen had dislodged some of the pointing. At all times we were completely confident in John’s advice and his attention to detail in carrying out the works. His work has restored very tired brickwork to its classical best for a 1920s house. We are extremely pleased and would have no hesitation in recommending him.

EXCELLENT RE POINTING

Jon repointed our 1905 terraced house in Exeter. He and Josh did a great job and house looks great and is definitely much warmer. We would definitely recommend Oldbury’s.

RE-POINTING ON VICTORIAN PROPERTY

Oldbury’s re-pointed the rear addition of our property in Exeter. The original pointing was in bad condition and had been subject to numerous patch-ups. Oldbury’s did a wonderful job – the addition now looks like new.
I am very happy to recommend Oldbury’s. The quote Jon provided for the work was very competitive, he arrived on time, worked hard through the day, and left the property as he had found it in the morning.

WORK ON LISTED BUILDING

A friend recommended Oldbury’s to me as I needed my chimney rebuilt on my Grade 2 listed property. Jon and his apprentice were hard working, knowledgeable and conscientious. I was kept informed about the progress of the work on a daily basis and invited up the scaffold to see the work being carried out. I have no problem in recommending them and will be using their services again. My elderly neighbour has also used Oldbury’s on my recommendation and has been very happy with the work carried out.

CHIMNEY FLASHING AND REPOINTING

Jon did a really good for us. Friendly, approachable and trustworthy builder. Thanks very much.

LYMPSTONE DRAINAGE

Jon delivered a French drain at the rear of our terraced property. Originally, a poor drainage solution existed which had caused severe damp to the external wall. Jon understood our requirements immediately and was able to recommend an expedient and cost effective solution, which was delivered with the minimum of fuss. His professionalism was particularly appreciated as I am currently out of the country and trying to manage the works remotely. A professional, delivering high standard, high value works. Highly recommended.

FOUR HUNDRED YEAR OLD COTTAGE IN LYMPSTONE

Oldbury’s did a fantastic job on the re-pointing of our very old cottage, part of a traditional Devon Long House. Traditional lime based mortar was used in keeping with the materials and workmanship originally used to build the property. Care and attention to detail are obviously second nature to Jon and his colleagues.
