Pete's on BBC Radio 4 now!

Damp houses and failed Cavity Wall Insulation are big news.  Pete recently did an interview on BBC Radio 4 - You and Yours - which investigated a case history of failed cavity wall insulation. You and Yours - Cavity Wall Insulation This is the tip of the iceberg, in which thousands of homes are becoming wet and cold as a result of sopping wet insulation pumped into cavities not suitable for insulation.  Cavity insulation DOES work, but only in properly designed modern brick wall construction.  See our pages on Cavity Insulation for more information.

If you have possible failed Cavity Wall Insulation, please contact us with all the details and we will pass this to the BBC, and CIVALLI (the CWI victims group) so that action can be taken. 

And the latest from Jeff Howell at the Telegraph:  3 million homes with failed cavity insulation? Government cover up?  Oh come on - the Government doesn't do things like that Jeff! According to CIVALLI, the failure rate of CWI is increasing rapidly - and yes - there IS a huge cover up.
