Hi all,

I'm guessing the cavity wall insulation has broken down. This was done on our 1960's bungalow well before we moved in, in 2012.

Doing some work on an outside wall showed the insulation to be very flaky, I now read that insulation can't be re done & I'm stuck with it. Anyone know why? I've also read somewhere that the whole lot needs to be removed, for such a refill to take place.

Cheers

I am guessing that when they pump in the insulation, be it wool or other, they have to watch an adjacent hole to know it has spread, if there is material already there, then it complicates this issue and they would not issue a certificate; as always the consumer gets scr*wed by costs.
