Cavity Wall Insulation Problems

Cavity Insulation is an effective way to reduce your energy costs.

But unfortunately there have been issues where cavity wall insulation has been mis-sold or not installed correctly.

When this has happened damp has often become a problem.

A large number of property owners have reported substandard installations leading to problems with damp and damage to their homes.

This could add up to as many as tens of thousands of homes nationwide.

Problems With Cavity Wall Insulation

There are a number of reasons why cavity wall insulation may need to be removed:

  • Problems when the product used is no longer providing insulating properties following time related degradation
  • Problems when the insulation may have been fitted in an inappropriate property
  • Problems when the insulation may have been fitted badly
  • Problems when the insulation may have been subject to flooding

Inappropriate cavity wall insulation in homes has become "a scandal", a Welsh MP has said, which was reported by the BBC

He called on the UK government to take responsibility for the "dreadful mess".

Who's affected

IRT Surveys Ltd has conducted a study of 250,000 UK homes, and has found that half of the cavity-walled homes it investigated have damp, slumped or missing insulation.

If this figure is true for the rest of the properties that have CWI installed, it would be the case that 3 million homes are affected by cavity wall insulation problems.
