External Wall Insulation Grants in Surrey with Streets Ahead

External Wall Insulation Grants in Surrey with Streets Ahead

Do you live in the Sur­rey area? Is your prop­erty built with solid brick walls rather than cav­ity? If so, you are def­i­nitely eli­gi­ble for a £5,000 grant towards the cost of exter­nal insu­la­tion, or ‘Solid Wall Insu­la­tion’ as it is some­times known. This is a rev­o­lu­tion­ary way to insu­late your home, turn­ing a once cold and unin­su­lated prop­erty into some­thing com­pa­ra­ble to a new build.

Why external insulation?

Insu­lat­ing exter­nally is a really prac­ti­cally, mas­sively effec­tive way to reduce damp issues, hugely increase the insu­lat­ing prop­er­ties of the wall and smarten up the appear­ance of the prop­erty.

If you have had dou­ble glaz­ing installed and think that has warmed up your home, then you will be amazed with exter­nal insu­la­tion. It will absolutely rev­o­lu­tionise the warmth and com­fort in the home, with the walls being taken up to a u-value of 0.27. If you have any damp prob­lems due to con­den­sa­tion, you will see mas­sive improve­ments – as the walls will be much warmer and there­fore reduce con­den­sa­tion.

How to claim the grant

The only restric­tion on the grant is that you live in the Sur­rey area. There are no cri­te­ria based on income or ben­e­fit sta­tus. The only thing you will­need is to have old solid brick walls rather than the more mod­ern cav­ity type walls. If you have any doubts, you can give us a call and we will be able to help work out if your home is right for exter­nal insu­la­tion.

How much funding can I get via Streets Ahead?

The Streets Ahead scheme is really sim­ple, and more gen­er­ous than the national GDHIF scheme. Any works up to £5,000 are cov­ered by the scheme, so you don’t have to pay a penny. Any works over £5,000 will receive the full grant of £5,000 and you will have to pay any costs above that. So a £7,000 instal­la­tion would only cost you £2,000. Sim­ple.

How long will the scheme last?

It is open to new appli­cants until Sep­tem­ber, and you will need to get the work installed by March 2016.

Con­tact us if you are inter­ested in this great incen­tive – give us a call now on 0208 144 0897.
