Cavity Wall Insulation

An effective and efficient method of insulating your home

Cavity wall insulation is a fast and effective way to reduce the amount of heat loss through your walls by up to 30%.

Cavity insulation works by pumping a layer of insulation into the cavity of your walls. This acts as a barrier and prevents heat from escaping meaning that you can lower the cost of heating your home and live with a little more comfort.

Fast, efficient, non-disruptive

The process of cavity wall insulation is fast and in most case can take up to 1 day to complete.
We carry out this job with minimal disruption to your lifestyle meaning that you can live as normal until the job is complete. Solid walls loose even more heat than cavity walls; the only way to reduce this heat loss is to insulate them on either the inside or the outside. Bayview Contracts continue to research the latest, most efficient and cost effective solutions to solid wall insulation (internal and external) to ensure that you the customer benefit from a tailored, bespoke solution that meets your specific needs.

How external wall insulation works

This involves adding a decorative weather-proof insulating treatment to the outside of your wall. The thickness of the insulation needs to be between 50 and 100mm and is usually installed where there are severe heating problems or the exterior of the building requires some form of other repair work providing the opportunity of adding insulation.

The savings

External wall insulation is more expensive than cavity wall insulation but it could save you around £385 a year on your energy bills and it could pay for itself in around 11 years. A three-bedroom semi-detached house could save around 1.9 tonnes of carbon dioxide (CO 2) a year.
