Since the late 90s, millions of properties in the UK have been insulated with cavity wall insulation. Most of these CWI installations will have been suitable for the property and carried out correctly.
However, it has come to light that hundreds of thousands of homes have had cavity wall insulation installed incorrectly or installed to unsuitable properties. Many were installed without following the CIGA (Cavity Insulation Guarantee Agency) best practice and manufacturer’s cavity wall insulation installation guidelines.
As a result, for many properties the cavity wall insulation is causing more harm than good. Many homes are now experiencing damp, condensation, rotten woodwork and failing wall ties due to incorrectly installed insulation. This can damage the value of the property, interior decorations and furnishings. Also, the mould can be detrimental to people living at the property.
How has this happened?
- Poor regulation and auditing
- Poor surveying standards
- Poor installation practices
- Poor suitability assessments
- Poor product choice by installers
- Poor record keeping and administration
- Poor training and monitoring
- Inadequate guarantees and compliance processes
Common Cavity Wall Insulation Problems:
- Damp Interior Walls
- Rotten Woodwork
- Blocked Air Vents
- Damaged Brickwork

We can help with bad CWI
We can help! Propoint-UK offer a highly recommended cavity wall insulation removal service. We remove damaged cavity wall insulation material as cleanly as possible with very little impact on the property. A machine blows compressed air into the wall cavity while a vacuum collects the damaged insulation from the bottom of the wall through strategically removed bricks. Then we inspect and ensure that all damaged insulation has been completely removed. The old insulation is then removed and cleaned up and the brickwork is made good.
