1970s Barn Conversion - Baildon

Retrofit Survey & Insulation Work

Job Description

1970s detached stone-built barn conversion

Location: Baildon, West Yorkshire

Work undertaken in July 2023

The client contacted Retrofit Projects in December 2022 and requested a whole house retrofit survey, including a thermal imaging survey. They were concerned about heat loss and rising energy bills and wanted to make significant improvements to their home.

A detailed survey was carried out of the property, highlighting areas of significant heat loss. The original barn conversion work was carried out in the 1970s and the property was very poorly insulated at that time with some sections having no insulation at all.

The client’s priority was to improve the comfort of the main living room.

The property needed significant up-grading and modernisation to make it warmer and more comfortable for the future.

The survey and report provided by Retrofit Projects allowed the client to fully appreciate the extent of the work required and the expected costs and duration of the project.
