If you have chosen to come to this page I guess you have a problem with the cavity wall insulation in your property. That could be damp, condensation, black mould or cold spots, etc.

So what are your options for removal of cavity wall insulation?



You could simply pay for the removal of cavity wall insulation.

A typical semi detached house would cost about £1,400, subject to survey, but we can give you an exact quote after the survey is completed.

That is to remove the cavity wall insulation. It does not cover the cost of repairing the “scars” to the walls of your property. Depending on the finish of your walls (rendered, face brick etc.), these scars could be quite considerable.

Of course, the cost of putting right the damage that may have been caused inside the house (wall decoration, furniture, wall plaster, flooring etc.) will also have to paid by yourself.

We believe that this should be the option of last resort. Why should you have to pay for the mistakes of others?


Contact CIGA.

The Cavity Insulation Guarantee Agency are the company that issues the 25 year guarantee for the cavity wall insulation.

To find out more about CIGA click here. CIGA was created by the insulation industry, and today it is still run by the industry, therefore it will always blame the customer, always. If you push it, they will send out a surveyor, who is paid by them, to check the problem. Then they will blame the customer again, so Google “CIGA Reviews” and decide for yourself.

Ultimately, you might be one of the lucky few that will have their insulation removed free of charge. But that’s all. They will not repair the damage caused inside the house, such as, wall decoration, furniture, wall plaster, flooring etc. So this will have to paid by yourself.
