Cavity Wall Insulation (CWI) started in mid 1995, when the Government launched a campaign to make homes in Britain more energy efficient and to reduce fuel bills for homeowners. However, since then, millions of people have seen their property develop major issues. People were being sold CWI when their property was not suited to the treatment; property was situated in exposed locations, property was in a coastal area or in a place prone to wind driven rain. These all lead to damp and mould issues. In addition, many homeowners found that the CWI was installed incorrectly or poorly which also resulted in the above.
If you were told that your Cavity Wall Insulation had a 25 year guarantee and you would get lower emissions and charges, but you have found that your bill has actually increased and you are living in conditions that are potentially hazardous to health, then you are highly likely to be entitled to compensation.
We have worked with victims of CWI who have found that the value of their property has significantly plummeted due to crumbling plaster, stained walls, condensation, mouldy clothing, upholstery, foul smells and/or health issues. If all of the above sounds familiar, then we urge you to get in touch!
