Insulation Services

CGH Property Services provide the full range of insulation services in Glasgow and surrounding areas. Our fully trained and experienced tradesmen can advise on the best type of insulation for your property so you get the most efficiency out of your insulation and value for your money.

A lot of heat is lost through the roof of many homes but with the right kind of insulation you could make substantial savings on energy bills as well as ensuring a warm and comfortable home throughout the year.

Home Insulation Advice

Our professional staff can advise on the best type of insulation for your home based on type of building and your budget then install your new insulation in just a few hours.

We can provide the following types of home insulation:

Loft Insulation

Loft insulation is a very effective method of preventing unnecessary heat loss from your home. Around a quarter of the energy you use to heat your home is lost through the roof, so with proper loft insulation your fuel bills can be significantly reduced saving you money almost immediately after it is installed.

Why Invest in Loft Insulation

  • Loft insulation is quick to install and a relatively inexpensive way to improve your home’s energy efficiency and energy rating.
  • Because loft insulation is effective for a minimum of 40 years, it will pay for itself many times within that time.

In addition to helping you save money on fuel bills, your boiler will run more efficiently and for longer because it will operate at a more consistent level.

CGH Property Services heating engineers can carry out a quick survey of your loft space and advise on the best type of loft insulation for your home or property. All loft insulation used by CGH Property Services conforms to building regulations.

External Wall Insulation Services Glasgow

External Wall Insulation reduces heat loss

Heat can pass through walls fairly easily in properties that have solid walls of masonry, concrete or brick. External wall insulation is a composite insulation system that is added to the walls of your house in layers.

External Wall Insulation Materials

The first layer is the insulation material which can be mineral wool, polystyrene, phenolic foam boards, PIR (Polyisocyanurate) boards or cork. The first layer is then covered with renders of base coat, mesh reinforcing and one of many available finishes of varying quality and price that can be finished to a choice of colour and texture.

Benefits of External Wall Insulation

  • Save money on heating bills
  • A warmer home during colder months
  • Extends the life of your boiler
  • Improves your home’s external appearance
  • Improves sound insulation
  • Adds an extra layer of protection from the weather
  • Improves the value of your home
  • May improve your home’s energy rating
  • Reduces the chance of condensation and mould in internal walls
  • Protects brickwork

External Wall Insulation Free Survey

CGH Property Services provide the complete external wall insulation service from the initial free, no obligation survey to the insulation design right through to the installation.

Internal Wall Insulation Services Glasgow

Why use Internal wall Insulation?

Older houses that were built before the 1920s are more likely to have solid walls rather than with two layers of bricks or masonry with a gap in between (cavity walls). Heat escapes more easily through solid walls than through cavity walls which means that older houses are harder to heat and generally less energy efficient than more modern houses. Installing internal wall insulation is a great answer to this problem.

Installing Internal Wall Insulation

The internal walls are fitted with a layer of insulation of varying thicknesses followed by a layer of plasterboard which are designed to be plastered over for painting or decorating.

Benefits of Internal Wall Insulation

  • Cheaper than external wall insulation
  • No maintenance
  • Save money on heating bills
  • A warmer home during colder months
  • Extends the life of your boiler
  • Improves sound insulation

CGH Property Services provide the complete internal wall insulation service from the initial free, no obligation survey of the internal walls to check they are fit for applying the insulation materials. This involves checking for flatness of the walls, damage or dampness. Our insulation engineers will then design the insulation ready for the installation.

Cavity Wall Insulation Services Glasgow

Uninsulated Houses

Houses that were built in the UK before after 1920 are more likely to have cavity walls (two layers of bricks or masonry with a gap in between) rather than solid walls. While cavity walls are inherently better at retaining heat than solid walls, their energy efficiency can be improved by filling the cavity with insulation material.

Installing Cavity Wall Insulation

Our engineers drill small holes into into the external layer of the walls. The cavity wall insulation is then blown into the cavity from the outside of the house. When the wall cavities are filled with the insulation material the holes are then filled in and finished off so that you wouldn’t know they were there.

Cavity Wall Insulation Types

There are various various types of cavity wall insulation which include mineral wool, UF foam, polystyrene beads and CGH Property Services’s cavity wall insulation engineers can advise on the best one to suit your home.

Benefits of Cavity Wall Insulation

  • Save money on heating bills
  • A warmer home during colder months
  • Extends the life of your boiler
  • Quick installation
  • No maintenance
  • Improves sound insulation

Draught Proofing Services Glasgow

Reduce Energy Bills with Draught Proofing

Draught proofing is one of the cheapest and easiest methods to keep your home warm and reduce your heating bills. In essence, it’s about preventing cold air from entering the house and preventing warm air from escaping.

Draught Proofing Solutions

Draught proofing solutions are usually very simple, for example fitting draught excluders or closing gaps.

How to Find Draughts in Your Home

There are plenty of places where there are gaps that cause draughts:

  • Windows
  • Doors (including letterboxes and keyholes) Floorboards and skirting boards Fireplaces
  • Pipes leading outside
  • Loft/attic hatches
  • Electrical fittings (sockets, light fittings)
  • Cracks or holes in walls

If you can locate the cause of draughts in your home, you may be able to carry out some draught-proofing work yourself. However, professional draught proofers have a better knowledge of which draught-proofing materials to use and where and how to use them.

Benefits of Draught Proofing

  • Low cost
  • Save money on heating bills
  • A warmer home during colder months
  • Extends the life of your boiler
  • Quick installation
  • No maintenance
  • Improves sound insulation
