Timber frame house insulation

Postby tonks52 » Fri Nov 04, 2016 10:13 pm

Hi, first post here.

I had three companies round today to quote for cavity wall insulation to our new home that we moved into two weeks ago.

The house is a 1970's build and does have cavity walls. However, I have found out that it is timber framed, so apparently that is a no no for regular cavity wall installation. From what I can tell I have the outer brick wall/cavity wall/plaster board.

Is there any product on the market that I could look to use? One of the people today suggested lining my walls with rolls of polystyrene which would apparently work well.

Open to suggestions. Just look for a way to maintain heat in my home.
