We now use Rockwool Granulated Wall Cavity Fill, which is a CSR Bradford product. It can be used in all wall applications ie. weatherboard, brick (veneer or cavity), or clad houses. It is silicone treated to repel moisture thus not allowing capillary action or the transfer of moisture to the plaster. Any moisture that may enter the cavity will still follow natural out wards course such as out the drain perps in brickwork. This treatment also allows the walls to "breathe" in that atmospheric moisture that accumulates in the home can still escape through the walls without any problems.
The Rockwool insulation has one of the highest R values of any insulation meaning that even the oldest of homes can enjoy having walls that comply with the latest energy star ratings. (This can also be said for ceilings and floors too of course).
Installing wall insulation in an existing home is a specialist task. Both the wall design and construction material needs to be taken into account. We have a great deal of experience in this field. A careful survey is done to plan the best way to fill the cavity space and after filling via access holes, the wall is returned to it's proper state.
