We have a fully qualified team of extraction specialists using the latest extraction technologies enabling us to return your property to its original condition prior to having cavity wall insulation installed.

Over 90% of the extractions our teams perform are as a result of cavity wall insulation being installed incorrectly. This being either because the installers did not follow the correct procedures at the time of installation or simply because the property should never have had insulation installed in the first place..

Unfortunately as with Double Glazing and Loft Insulation, the Government created a number of schemes whereby cavity wall insulation was made available under various grants, and this opened the doors for a lot of Cavity Wall Insulation companies to spring up overnight.

Many of these companies were there just to cash in on the situation resulting in some disasterous cases of badly installed insulation jobs.
