Cavity wall insulation
How to tell if you have cavity walls?
If your walls are like this with all the bricks going the same way we call this stretcher bond and we can fill these walls in most properties.
If your walls have bricks like this then they are probably solid walls as the builder has used the bricks to tie the two walls together and this we can not fill as it will leave a cold spot.

Figures form EST website these are estimates based on insulating a gas heated home with no subsidies on cost.
Important information about your cavity walls
The walls have an open cavity of 40mm and above
As long as there is no damp in the walls
Around 10 years Old as most new properties have the walls insulated when built
The property is not system built or Timber framed
If flats then all must be done together
It’s better to fill all of the walls at the same time rather than not do certain sections, and when a conservatory is attached we will need to drill inside the conservatory if filling the walls above.
The job should take about 3 to 4 hours for a 3 Bed Semi home, once completed the fitters will clean up and try to leave you the way we found it, sometimes the wind will blow dust about we can’t control this.
Solid wall insulation
There are two ways of installing Solid Wall Insulation External as above or Internal. There are many different finishes such as Spar, Pebble dash, Brick slips and render and many more but we are just showing the standard render as this is what most people go for.
There are many colours so again ask about this at survey stage so you can pick a colour that suits you. If your home was built before 1920 the chances are that it is solid built but we also do properties that are system built these were homes built around 1950 with metal framed construction.
What do solid walls look like?
If your bricks in your walls are like this, then they are solid walls.
Where does your house loose heat?
What will I save?
|Building||Detached||Semi Detached||Mid Terrace||Bugalow||Flat|
|Amount of Carbon saved per year||1040kgn||600kg||395kg||410kg||325kg|
|Insulation Cost||External: £6,000 to £25,000 / Internal: £4,500 to £15,000|
Internal wall insulation is fitted to the outside envelope of the property and this will require working form inside your home, with the insulation averaging 100mm this will mean that we need to extend window cills and move any radiators that you have on outside walls and replace the skirting more information can be gained at point of survey.

Important information about your roof and loft insulation
In very old houses pre 1900 the joist may differ so give us a call and we will send one of our surveyors round for a free no obligation quote.
Installing draughtproofing is not a massive heat saving measure but a great comfort measure as it diverts the draughts away from you and stops the cold rushing into the rooms.When you’re home as wooden door frames or the old crittall type windows these can have draughtproofing fitted to them.
UPVC and Aluminium frames as not suitable to fit the draughtproofing that we are talking about for these you may need new seals fitting.
Installing Draughtproofing could save you around £10 to £50 per year but as we say the comfort factor out ways the savings in our opinion. Having a draught free home is better than having a draughty one.
Draughts from around your Windows, Doors and Loft hatch are the most common areas so if you’re feeling these draughts give us a call
