Personal story:

I’d lived in the house 10 years before making major changes in 2013. During the 5 years before, I had had double glazing and composite front and back doors installed. The cavity wall in the 1970s bathroom extension had also been done then.
It was looking over the Eco house at Miles Platting and then visiting SuperHome owner Eric Fewster (see Hersey St, Salford) which made me determined get my house revamped. The work was carried out by Eric (www.ColdProof.co.uk) and Bob Hope of Expert Home Extensions (www.experthomeextensions.co.uk).

Motivations:

The house remained draughty and I also wanted the kitchen and (very cold bathroom) modernised. The whole place needed to be more comfortable.

Measures installed: 
  • Condensing boiler
  • Double Glazing
  • Draught-proofing
  • External Wall Insulation
  • Floor Insulation
  • Loft Insulation
  • Low Energy Lighting
  • Mechanical Ventilation Heat Recovery
  • Water Saving Devices
