Selecting who does the work is a major decision, get it wrong and you could be storing up trouble for the future. Use our 10-point plan to become an instant expert.
Take your time with the installers you meet, ask these questions and a good, reputable installer will give you detailed answers, some may need to go back to their office for a little more information but if they cannot give you a detailed answer to each of these points then walk away. You’re investing thousands of pounds and adjusting the structure of your home. Don’t make an expensive mistake.

Nothing in life is ever guaranteed but if you follow these steps you will be better informed to make your decision.
Don’t be afraid to ask questions. A good builder or installer will be happy to answer. If they don’t respond, just walk away. Do not sign a contract or pay a deposit until you are happy with the information they provide. A big thank you to our sister company Insulated Homes who helped put together this useful 10 point guide.
