Save money and reduce your energy consumption with bespoke cavity wall insulation using spray foam, thermabead or fibre insulants.
A cavity wall is a wall in your property that consists of a spacing in between another wall. For example, the exterior wall of your house may be a cavity wall which is two walls together separated by a gap. This is a relatively modern form of construction for residential and commercial properties. Traditionally walls were singular which cannot be insulated as well as a cavity wall. Cavity wall insulation simply fills this gap between the two walls allowing for a more insulated, sound proof and robust structure.
