so bought a house last year, the house was build in 1962 block and render construction / semi detached.
the old dear that owned it before me had cavity wall insulation installed under some grant scheme so i hadnt really bothered about it. Especially as when i was fitting a new flue for the gas boiler and i drilled through the wall lots of white fluffy stuff was in the cavity.
Anyway fast forward to last week and i was up the loft and i noticed i could see down the cavity on the gable wall and i notice that i dont really see much insulation, in fact i recon that there isnt actually any above the ground floor for the full width of the wall!! the rooms always been a bit cold.
I take it that this isnt normal??
Can i just go and buy some of these wee white balls and pour them down the cavity? or will mixing types of insulation cause problems?
can i have this fixed under the grant schemes or will the fact that its been done before / possibly crap will mean the property wont qualify?
