My ongoing saga of condensation. By now I think everyone knows about the dripping walls in the kitchen in winter. The walls are dry now because its heated up and stopped raining a bit and I use the de humidifier as an extractor fan substitute.
Someone suggested cavity wall insulation might solve this.
To cut a long story short, I the local council sent someone round who is now arranging for cavity wall insulation ( the bead stuff) and for 10" of insulation in the roof.
However, now OH is saying it is a waste of time and will likely cause more problems. I have googled it one site says one thing, another entirely the opposite.
So, in short,opinions please - should I get this or not ( btw, it seems I can have this FOC despite the fact they stopped grants because it seems there is still funding for homes like mine which suffer from what they call locally " the Cornish problem" - wind, wet, rain, cold SW, old house and no insulation since 1950's)
I have a 1950's detached bungalow in a rural village. Electric only (no mains gas or drains either).
Any help deciding on this would be helpful.
