In 2018, SBS began a £920,000 scheme for The Vale of Glamorgan Council, which involved re-roofing and fitting solid wall insulation to 76 occupied properties. The scheme is now nearing completion, with many local families already enjoying warmer homes and lower heating bills.
Located within 14 residential blocks in Barry, South Wales, the properties have been fitted with a BBA-certified external wall insulation system manufactured by the British manufacturer Soltherm. It comprises EPS insulation and an acrylic render.
The scheme has also involved the extension of flat roofs, together with associated modifications to soffits, fascias and rainwater goods. It also entailed cavity wall tie installations and, on some properties, the removal of old insulation. More details can be found in our original project announcement article.
Describing the results of the scheme, Nick Speed, Housing Inspection Supervisor (HIS) from the Vale of Glamorgan Council said that the standard of work was "second to none", and that he was very pleased with the quality of the finished properties.
