Frequently Asked Questions
Cavity Wall Insulation is the material that was recommended to millions of people across the country, to be placed in-between the two exterior walls of your home, to insulate walls in your property, thereby keeping the heat in, reducing the rate at which your home loses heat and making your house cheaper to run.
Over the past two years, it has materialised that many of the installs carried out across England and Wales were either ineffective because they were not done properly, or, improper because the homes were not actually suitable. What this has resulted in is actually a reverse of the insulation’s purpose. Millions of people across the country are now experiencing the equivalent of wet wool attempting to heat their homes, causing untold damp, mould and structural damage as the water, breaches the cavity and affects homes.
Originally, energy companies were provided with funds to allocate for Cavity Wall Insulation. This then led to subcontractors being utilised. At Barrister-Direct, we will look specifically at your Cavity Wall Insulation and who installed it. If they are a company that is still active, your claim will be against them. Alternatively, we will make a claim against CIGA – the Cavity Insulation Guarantee Agency. Our expert team will look into your installation and claim and ensure we find the right defendant, who can rectify your situation.
