Actis Insulation adds value to conversion

Actis Insulation adds value to conversion

A West Midlands development company has added £10,000 to the value of its unusual conversion of a chicken shed into a baker’s dozen of small country homes – by using insulation which maximises the saleable square footage of the property.

Solihull-based Ardenvale Ltd chose to use products from the Actis Hybrid range when it converted the 10,000 sq ft 1940s one time hen house into a selection of one and two bedroom cottages.

Using insulating vapour control layer Actis H Control Hybrid in the walls gave the builders an extra 3 or 4 cm of floorspace at every wall – which, across 13 houses, enabled them to add an additional £10,000 to the overall asking price for the development.

Ardenvale director Peter Knott said "The walls are timber framed and using H Control Hybrid was pretty straightforward. Though saving 3 to 4cm per wall doesn’t sound much, if you take it across the whole site it’s added an extra £10,000 in value to the development.”
