Polystyrene Removal

Loft Ladders Essex can now offer the professional service of Polystyrene Removal and replacement insulation, as we receive a number of enquiries from residents situated in the South East asking us to remove the polystyrene from their loft.

They have witnessed the polystyrene sticking to their electrical wiring. This has normally been highlighted when an electrician or surveyor has visited.

We have investigated this product, which was blown into many lofts during the 1970’s and 1980’s all over the country, and the first signs are the polystyrene sticking to the cables.

The second stage is the cables becoming brittle due to the polystyrene breaking down the plastic outer sleeve.

And the third stage is when the polystyrene breaks down the inner plastic sleeve revealing live cabling giving the potential risk of FIRE.

We can remove the polystyrene and can re-insulate with fibreglass insulation saving you up to a massive 20% reduction on your heating costs per year, plus also helping to protect the environment.

Please contact us if you would like us to remove the polystyrene in your loft.
