Given the present market conditions in the construction industry brought on by stricter planning control and the triple dip recession bringing with it a general squeeze on credit, customers are understandably demanding more BANG for their buck.

Warmerwall supply PolySteel Insulating Concrete Formwork (approved for mortgage purposes by the council of mortgage lenders) and are enjoying a mini boom in sales brought on by all of the above and at the request of some shrewd, forward looking developers who are using this build method to give greater scope to their existing operation. The system is ideal for substructures, basements, pools, and superstructures and dovetails very easily with other building methods be it brick, block, timber, steel or glass.

The overall impact on your business would be to provide a greater range of affordable possibilities to your customers in particular basements to provide more living space on the same size site with fewer problems as far as planning is concerned.

What does it hurt to have a look and weigh it up for yourself? Call us and we will be happy to send over a simple guide. The guide requires the area of wall in square metres entered (just one number) to give an indicative cost in less than 5 seconds.

The gas usage for hot water and heating (standard combination boiler and rad system) is 43p per day (10.9kwh at 3.93p/kwh). This suggests the heating is less than 39kwh/m/a. ((10.9 x 365)/100)

The electric usage is 115p per day (8.5kwh at 13.5p/kwh).

The electric and gas added amounts to just £1.58 per day.

The recorded use of the energy has been by actual readings from the meters between April 2012 and July 2012. The happy couple work from their home office.
