Insulation stops heat escaping from the house. In general, the better insulated a home is, the more it will retain heat.
Professionally installed and quality insulation restricts the flow of heat and sound through the walls, ceiling and underfloor. Without home insulation installed, valuable heat is lost during winter, and unwanted heat is gained during summer causing you the homeowner to pay more on your electricity bill to keep the home warm in winter and cool in summer.
We are your local professionals supplying and installing ceiling, underfloor and wall insulation to homes throughout the North Island.
All our work is installed to the Energy Efficiency Conservation Authority (EECA) standard, which is over and above the current New Zealand standards, as required for new builds and retrofit applications.

Ceiling and underfloor insulation has been compulsory in all rental homes since 1 July 2019. The healthy homes insulation standard builds on the current regulations and some existing insulation will need to be topped up or replaced.
All private rentals must comply with the healthy homes standards within 90 days of any new or renewed tenancy after 1 July 2021, with all private rentals complying by 1 July 2024.
GVB – Ground Vapor Barrier
Ground Moisture Barriers (GMB, also known as GVB) is a polythene groundsheet that covers the underfloor of a home. The polythene acts as a cap on rising damp and therefore lowers the moisture level in your home.
Preventing rising damp will reduce condensation and mould, as well as making your home easier to heat.
Dollar for dollar, installing a ground moisture barrier is one of the best things you can do to improve the health and comfort of your home, without the price tag!
