New Build & Construction Industry

Building your new home is the biggest investment that you will make in your lifetime so it is vitally important that every aspect of the build is to the highest standard that your budget will allow.  With ever rising energy costs the insulation of a new home is a vital cog in getting it right.

At Envirobead we will guide you through each step and help tailor the right insulation package for your home.

The cavity wall insulation you choose is vital in restricting as much as possible of the 35% of heatloss that a home loses through its walls. While the building regulation for cavity walls now requires a U value of 0.21w/m2k many energy conscious home builders will try to get below this mark as it provides the best return on investment.  Take a look at the chart below to what U values Envirobead customers are achieving;

Cavity Width U Value
110mm 0.27w/m2k
150mm 0.2w/m2k
200mm 0.15w/m2k
250mm 0.13w/m2k
300mm 0.11w/m2k
