Wall Insulation - What We Do
Slate Insulations Ltd. insulate cavity walls to minimise heat loss. We will fill the space in your wall with our two system of cavity wall insulation - SIG Superfill 40. This lessens the air within the cavity preventing convection and can substantially reduce space heating costs.
To insulate your cavity walls, the installer drills small holes at intervals of around 1m in the outside wall of your home. With specially designed equipment, they then blow the insulation into the cavity. We then make good all the holes by using our many colour dies to match the joints in the brickwork and in rendered properties we would use a colour mix cement for a smooth or rough texture.
Hard To Treat Cavity Walls - Our Speciality
Nearly 6 million properties in the UK have cavity walls that are classed as ‘hard-to-treat’. These are also sometimes known as ‘hard-to-fill’. This means that they cannot be insulated using the same methods and products as a standard cavity wall.
The standard practice for insulating a hard-to-treat cavity is to drill holes in the outer leaf of brickwork and inject the insulation material into the wall cavity.
Free Replacement of Defective Cavity Wall Insulation
Slate Insulations Ltd. provide a process of extracting ineffective cavity wall material after damp has damaged the walls. This process offers a much more effective way of returning the customers property back to its original condition, before the damage was caused. Once wet, the material breaks down, becomes sodden and clumpy, therefore, rendering it inefficient. This inefficiency means that heat is lost through the walls, decreasing the warmth in the home resulting in using more heating/electricity.
If your property falls into any of the following categories you may be entitled to free cavity wall insulation:
- Exposed To The Elements
- Narrow Cavity Width (40-49mm)
- Cavities requiring substantial remedial works
- Cavities requiring non-standard materials or techniques
- Three Storeys and Above Properties
- Four Hours Remedial Work
