    First victory in cavity wall insulation case



    A north-west law firm has won what it believes is the first contested case against installers of faulty cavity wall insulation.

    Cavity walls claims have long been seen as a potential area of growth for claimant firms looking for new areas of practice, but the lawyer who ran the case warned that they are not straightforward to run.

    Cavity wall insulation is seen as a cost-effective way to improve energy efficiency, reducing heating bills and carbon emissions. But it is not suitable for all houses and incorrectly installed insulation can give rise to problems ranging from damp and condensation, through to serious structural damage or even health risks to those living within the property.

    Liverpool-based Pilkington Shaw successfully argued that the claimant’s property was not suitable to receive insulation and that it should never have been installed.

    The judge at Cardiff County Court awarded damages of over £6,000, plus interest.
