Granite/Cob/Brick &Block Insulation
With 30% of Cornwall situated in Areas of Outstanding Natural Beauty (AONB) planning laws are not kind to external insulation which changes the original face of the building.
To successfully insulate internally solid wall buildings requires a good understanding of U-values and insulation materials in order to avoid causing complications such as interstitional condensation. With experience of individually designing insulation systems to fit seamlessly with existing structure, we are here to introduce you to your options and guide you towards a solution that suits your priorities and preferences.
Damp and Mould Prevention
Old buildings often form damp and consequentially mould. Today, we currently spend approx. 90% of our time indoors exposing ourselves to mould and mites causing asthma and other respiratory diseases. Damp and mould in old buildings is commonly caused from modern intervention such as unbreathable finishes trapping moisture internally. To appropriately treat your damp issue we will assess and design solutions which fit your situation and wishes.
Improving a Sensitive/Listed Building
Listed buildings are the pride and joy of many of us, however, to improve the comfort of them can be a difficult task. Specialising in natural materials we provide bespoke advice enabling you to live comfortably whilst preserving your homes’ historic value as well as complying with Listed Building Regulations.
