Newly-built properties should have sufficient home insulation
Properties that are built in the future should have sufficient levels of cavity wall insulation to prevent reparation work that may be necessary without it.
That is if comments from Grand Designs TV presenter Kevin McCloud, are anything to go by. He said retrofitting home insulation in five or ten years should be avoided, when speaking at the Great British Refurb event.
Condensation and mould growth are just some of the issues that he claimed could be avoided with sufficient preparation during construction.
However, existing homes can still be upgraded, according to the expert, as UK companies have technology that can be adapted to suit a variety of styles of property, even those built pre-war without any damp-proofing or cavity wall insulation.
Mr McCloud’s comments came after figures released from Thinkinsulation.com, revealed that 80 per cent of those asked had not attempted to make their house more energy-efficient with insulation in the last three years.
