Do you feel that your home is losing more heat than it should be? Although you may have cavity wall insulation in place, could there be a problem with that insulation? We all appreciate that insulation can reduce heat loss, saving home owners an impressive amount of money in the form of savings on their energy bills. Materials might reasonably be expected to last for some years, but there are occasions when it’s necessary to carry out insulation removals.
If you are a home owner in #Sussex, then we’re pleased to be able to offer a comprehensive insulation removal service. Indeed, our services also extend to surrounding counties.
Rising heating bills could be the first sign that you have a problem with your existing insulation. The inaccessible nature of cavity wall insulation means that it may be difficult to identify precisely what the issue is.
In reality, it’s very difficult to explore further, without having both the equipment and expertise necessary to examine the situation fully. We have the technology and the skills to be able to establish the underlying cause of problems.
When carrying out previous work in Sussex, we have encountered properties where cavity wall insulation has simply not been installed properly. On other occasions, it has been disturbed, sometimes by other renovation work and home improvements.
When faced with insulation that has been disrupted, which may have led to the presence of damp within the home, we understand the importance of acting quickly and effectively. Unfortunately, the nature of cavity wall insulation is such that it’s impossible for home owners to remove materials themselves. It’s vital that qualified contractors are employed for the task.
Our own approach to cavity wall insulation removal in Sussex involves a tried and tested process. We begin by establishing the cause of the problem and whether removal represents the best option for the home owner. In cases where we are suitably assured that this is the case, we proceed by using an industrial vacuum to suck existing material out from between the brickwork.
As we carry out the work, we have a very firm focus on keeping disruption to an absolute minimum. In fact, our specialist machinery enables us to ensure that, after insulation removal has been completed, the exterior of the property shows no signs of work being undertaken. After the material has been removed, it’s usually bagged up on site, prior to being taken away for disposal.
The actual disposal of insulating material is something that we take very seriously: we have legal and environmental obligations, which we’re always sure to follow. We believe that it’s critical to do so, protecting the interests of the home owner.
In many cases where we have removed cavity wall insulation from homes in Sussex, we have then worked closely with the home owner to ensure that replacement insulation is successfully installed. Our team of specialists are able to assist with all elements of that process too, including identify grants and other forms of financial assistance that may be applicable within the Sussex area.
