For people in the UK Stone-wall cavity insulation claims are a serious issue, with so many people in the 1990s having properties of this type being told they need this type of building work done, when in fact strategically it is and was an inappropriate insulation.
If you live in a stone built property which has cavity wall insulation installed you may wish to check on whether or not you are due compensation from a CWI Claim.
The Background Of Stone Cavity Wall Claims
Stone houses in particular have had problems with cavity wall insulation, and these problems with a stone house in contrast to brick built properties is the expenses incurred in correcting the issue.
It was touted as the energy saving solution to keep household bills down and the house warm.
It is much more expensive to fix a stone cavity wall insulation problem than it is to fix a brick built property, and so ‘stone wall cavity claims’ can be of a significantly higher value.
The Primary Issues With Stone Wall Properties and insulation:
Firstly (Miss Selling) – these cavity insulations were pushed onto people on a mass scale, even in an environment where there was no need for such a measure to insulate the property (after which, insulation installed, and either it was not required or carried out to a bad standard).
One of the ways in which such a product was sold as as an energy saving measure, to lower bills, to make the home operate more energy efficiently,
Next (Low quality work) – Many of the construction professionals (the insulation installer) working on stone cavity insulation projects were either poorly trained, not following the proper building regulations, or both during the CWI installations.
Another issue is the fact that many of these stone built properties have steel or timber framed structures, which instantly means the installation needs to be removed as it would be considered an inappropriate insulation (either an internal or extenal wall insulation would be more appropriate for a steel or timber framed property, and this in itself can cost in excess of £10,000 to fix).
As you may imagine, both of these scenarios have led to significant costs, significant financial losses, and significant personal stress and anguish for the victims of the mis selling and the low quality workmanship.
