How to Remove Cavity Wall Insulation

In general, your property will be deemed suitable for cavity wall insulation under the following conditions:

  • The external walls consist of unfilled cavities.
  • The brickwork or masonry is in good condition.
  • The width of the cavity is at least 35mm (or 50mm for certain insulation types).

  • Issues related to poor maintenance or structural concerns such as wall cracks.
  • Signs of rising or penetrating dampness.
  • Cavities containing debris, dirty wall ties, or builder's rubble.
  • Exposed locations, particularly where exterior walls are vulnerable to severe weather conditions and driving rain.
  • Guttering that is overflowing or blocked.
