Cavity Wall Claim Process
For those who don’t know, most houses built after 1930 have 2 walls in their construction, the inner walls that surround you inside, and the outer walls with render, paint or pebbledash on them, for example. There is a gap of only a few inches between the 2 walls or “leaves” which act as an air barrier, meaning that, in theory, all the cold and rain from outside won’t come inside because there is a gap.
Cavity wall insulation was installed in millions of homes across the UK and homeowners were under the impression this would save them £1,000s each year on energy bills. But what happened was a lot of rouge company’s jumped on the bandwagon and were completing up to 3 insulation jobs a day when it should of took a day to do one.
Due to a lack of workmanship a lot of properties began to experience mould, damp and condensation which affected the properties value but more importantly the inhabitants health.
