    I'm sure that's the name of the company that did ours five years ago (under
    Warmfront, as I was unemployed for a while). They did a neat job, left all
    the vents clear and I've found full insulation in each of the holes that
    I've drilled through the wall since. We've had no problems and found the
    house considerably more comfortable.

    The one thing they did wrong was not to check where the electricity
    cupboard was, as in our house it is recessed into the wall and is therefore
    the only single skinned section of the house - it didn't take them more
    than five minutes to scoop the fibres out and vac up though!
