Cavity Wall Insulation Claims
You could be entitled to thousands of pounds in compensation if your home has had cavity wall insulation fitted and suffered from damp or mould as a result. The compensation for cavity wall insulation claims may include the cost of:
- Removing the faulty cavity wall insulation from your home.
- Correct installation of new cavity wall insulation if your home is suitable.
- Fully rectifying any damage caused by the cavity wall insulation, including replastering the affected walls, redecorating, replacing damaged furniture (including kitchen cabinets), replacing damaged carpets and curtains.
Background to Cavity Wall Insulation Claims
In recent years millions of homes across the UK have had cavity wall insulation retro-fitted. This has largely been driven by the Government, which put pressure on the big energy companies to make homes more energy efficient in order to reduce carbon emissions.
Unfortunately, in many cases, cavity wall insulation was either unsuitable for the type or location of the properties, or it was not fitted to an acceptable standard. This is despite a requirement for cavity wall insulation installations to meet strict criteria in accordance with the manufacturer’s installation guidelines, and under the Cavity Insulation Guarantee Agency (CIGA) best practice.
Thousands of homeowners have suffered the misfortune of serious damp and mould problems in their homes, sometimes severe enough to cause health problems.
Properties along the west coast of Great Britain have seen the worst of the problems, due to the prevailing westerly wind and rain from the North Atlantic ocean and Irish Sea. However, the problems are not restricted to this area, and at TRUE Solicitors LLP, we have seen properties all over England & Wales that have suffered from incorrectly installed cavity wall insulation.
