O'Connell's Drywall Contractors Ltd joins association promoting insulation excellence

Date: Tue 19th February 2013

O’Connell’s Drywall Contractors Ltd of Southeast England Region is pleased to announce its membership to the National Insulation Association (NIA) which represents around 95% of the home insulation industry in the UK.

A recent independent survey* showed that 86% of all homeowners in the UK think that it is either very or quite important that the company they employ to carry out home improvements be a member of a professional trade association, so by joining the NIA, O’Connell’s Drywall Contractors Ltd is responding to that need.

Members of the NIA abide by a strict Code of Professional Practice, giving householders the reassurance that they are receiving the best possible advice and that all work is carried out professionally and to the highest standards.

With almost half of all homes in the UK lacking adequate insulation, potentially losing around 50% of their heat through walls and roofs, the NIA is keen to raise awareness of the huge savings householders can make by simply improving their home insulation.

The average household could save around £265 a year by simply installing cavity wall and loft insulation. For those with solid walls, insulating the loft and walls will save even greater sums per year – and the best news of all is that installing insulation needn’t break the bank. In fact for some households it could be free of charge.

With recent government initiatives to reduce the UK’s carbon footprint there are also many subsidies available to bring the cost of insulation down and make it extremely affordable. For the average home the cost of installing cavity wall and loft insulation is as little as £500 and for those on benefits or aged 70 and over it could be completely free.

Mr John O’Connell, Managing Director of O’Connell’s Drywall Contractors Ltd said: “We are delighted to join the NIA and the reassurance that this gives to our customers. Not only can they be confident that we provide a top quality service, but with so many bogus traders around these days, they are safe in the knowledge that

O’Connell’s Drywall Contractors Ltd is a reputable company backed by the industry’s trade association. [In the case of cavity wall insulation, our workmanship and materials are also covered by the independent 25 year guarantee provided by the Cavity Insulation Guarantee Agency (CIGA).”] IF APPLICABLE

All members of the NIA can provide free home insulation surveys and advise you of the most appropriate methods of insulation for your home and also any grants that you may be entitled to. Call O’Connell’s Drywall Contractors Ltd today on 01795 410477 to book an appointment.

* An independent survey was carried out by GFK on behalf of the National Insulation Association between 4th and 6th July 2008. Figures show that nationally 66 % of all homeowners feel that it is very important for a home improvement company to be a member of a professional trade association and 20% felt it was quite important.
