Energy Efficiency Work
Solid Wall Insulation
This work entails fixing thermally insulated plasterboards to the inside of walls and applying a plaster skim for a smooth finish. The work will increase the warmth of solid brick houses and will help to reduce the cost of heating bills.
We will write to you when we are due to work in your area and ask you to contact us to make an appointment, if you are considering having the work done. We will then do a small survey of your home and arrange a start date with you.
If you live in any of the areas where we have already worked and you decide you would like to have the work done, it’s not too late, please contact us.
Most of the lofts in Derby Homes properties are insulated adequately, those that didn’t have adequate loft insulation have received an upgrade.
If you think that you may need additional insulation, get in touch with us. We can check our records and see how much insulation you currently have.
Cavity Wall Insulation
We previously carried out a very small programme of cavity wall insulation for properties with cavities that were not previously insulated.
If you think that you may need cavity wall insulation, get in touch. We can check our records and see how much insulation you currently have.
